The Krallerhof And Its New Spa Temple

People know it, the Krallerhof in Leogang in the province of Salzburg. For decades one of the most renowned hotels in Austria and most popular destinations for winter sports enthusiasts, golfers and hikers. And one of the first to focus on spa: in the early 1970s, with what was then the largest private indoor pool in western Austria and a Bisazza-tiled sauna area. From farm to five-star retreat, the family-run hotel continues to demonstrate vision and set standards: now with “Atmosphere by Krallerhof”. “Atmosphere by Krallerhof“? Behind it is a spa temple that immediately takes you to other spheres. And has a very special atmosphere. It was designed by Hamburg star architect Hadi Teherani and his team. Not that the previous wellness area with its 1720 square meters had to hide. But it lacked water areas. It was to be a natural bathing lake, along with outdoor facilities. And so an international competition was launched, resulting in an ambitious project. The proposal by Hadi Teherani, who had his vision in mind the moment he stepped onto the terrace at Kraller Hof, was convincing: He wanted to open up the view, into the mountain world. And: The new building should not be a foreign body, but should integrate itself into this landscape. Therefore, a hut had to give way and massive earthmoving had to be carried out. Atmosphere by Krallerhof: integrated into the landscape It was worth it, because the integration into the landscape has succeeded perfectly: If you look at the spa complex from said terrace, the green roof looks like the continuation of mountain meadows. And the path leading over the roof appears like hiking trails winding up a mountain. The illusion will surely become even more perfect if, as planned, sheep will graze on it one day. Viewed from the front, the building of the Krallerhof Spa looks like a hill with a cave, in whose glazed front the sky, the mountains and the mountain railroad are reflected, making the whole thing almost disappear visually. Also the view on the back, which one has from the yoga room, the panorama sauna and the rest area: It leads in the direction of the Pinzgau Grasberge mountains and proves that Teherani was right: a normal building would have blocked these wonderful views into and over the meadows and mountains. Virtual infinity The view into infinity is central to Tehrani’s architecture: thus, even in the building, it repeatedly lands from the large to the small, as the ceiling is vaulted and follows the line down to the floor, where plants take over the interior and bring the calm, stylish ambience in beige and gray with green to life.… weiterlesen

Peach Fuzz – 2024 Is All About “Peach”

Peach fuzz, or more precisely Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, is the official color of the year 2024. It is a velvety-soft peach shade that we will encounter again and again this year in many areas, in fashion, accessories, graphics and various design areas. But where does the trend come from? Peach Fuzz was named color of the year by Pantone, which is why you will be seeing “peach” more often this year, and not just in the form of juicy fruit. The fashion and accessories sector in particular likes to take its cue from the annual “it” colors. But who or what is Pantone to dictate a color to us so easily? Pantone is an American company that was founded in New York in 1962. It has developed a color system that is used worldwide. It helps to considerably simplify communication about color matching, particularly in the production of printed matter and textiles. The standardized colors each have a number and designation and can therefore be assigned at any time. Incidentally, Pantone is an artificial word made up of pan (Greek πᾶν, “all-encompassing”) and tone (English color tone). The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is based on 18 basic colors that are mixed together in various proportions to produce all the other colors in the system. It now comprises thousands of shades. The colors are presented in fan form (the Pantone Formula Guides) and in ring binder form (Pantone Solid Chips Books). Enjoy warmth with Peach Fuzz For 23 years, the Color Institute has selected a new color for each year. In 2023, for example, it was “Viva Magenta”. This year it is “Peach Fuzz”, a shade between pink and orange that conveys warmth. A color with a vintage atmosphere that reflects the past on the one hand, but also has a contemporary appeal in a modern interpretation. Peach Fuzz represents our desire to take care of ourselves and others. “In developing a shade that reflects our inherent longing for closeness and connection, we chose a color that radiates warmth and modern elegance. This shade radiates compassion, is like a tangible embrace and effortlessly bridges the gap between youthfulness and timelessness,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Institute, explains why Peach Fuzz was chosen as Pantone Color of the Year 2024: “At a time when so many areas of our lives are characterized by unrest and turmoil, our need for care, empathy and compassion is becoming ever stronger – as are our ideas of a more peaceful future.… weiterlesen

Property Owner – How Do I Create New “Liquidity”?

A property as a financial lifeline. Financial challenges are an inevitable part of life. Whether it’s financing children’s education, the failure of a self-employment venture, an impending divorce, inheritance disputes or obstacles with credit commitments. All of these situations can create a sudden need for additional liquidity. At such times, real estate can be more than just a home. A property can be a crucial financial resource. Andreas Müller, a renowned expert in the partial purchase of real estate and owner of the company Realwertpartner Immobilien GmbH, will explain below how property owners can profit from their property in such situations. The property as a financial safety net A property often represents a significant portion of a person’s or family’s wealth. It is not only a place of retreat and security, but also a potential financial safety net. In times of unexpected financial stress, the value tied up in a property can serve as a lifeline. You don’t necessarily have to sell the entire property and look for a new place to live in order to access this capital. There are innovative approaches such as the partial real estate sale, in which only a portion of the property is sold, allowing the owner to continue living in his or her home. This approach offers a flexible solution to generate liquidity without having to completely give up the beloved home. The process of partial sale The partial sale of real estate is a specialized and structured process aimed at helping property owners in financial straits. Essentially, it involves the sale of a certain percentage of the property’s value in exchange for immediately available cash. The owner thus receives a portion of the market value of their property, but still retains the right to live there and the option to sell the rest of the property at a later date. This means that the owner can continue to live in the property and use it according to his ideas. For this lifelong unrestricted use of the sold share, the partial seller then pays the buyer, such as the company Realwertpartner Immobilien GmbH, a monthly so-called usage fee. The process usually begins with an appraisal of the property, followed by the seller’s determination of the percentage of the sale, which can be a maximum of 55 percent of the appraised market value. Once an agreement is reached, the sale is notarized by a notary public.… weiterlesen
