Strikingly modern design and humble heritage are the trademarks of Tempel 74 Apartments in the heart of the Mellau-Damüls ski region, just 500m to the ski lifts. Centuries-old Alpine craftsmanship marries pioneering architecture: a design concept that is very much at home in Bregenzerwald, a region of Austria famed for its archi-candy buildings and bau culture which dot the Alpine villages. The architecture is standout sharp and the fresh timbered façades are as indigenous as the wraparound Kanisfluh mountain range. The construction and architectural brainchild of owner Jürgen Haller, a local famed for his trademark design aesthetics. Tempel 74 is actually two buildings, one in the folksy Bregenzerwald style of traditional diamond-shape windows, native spruce shingles and Alpine shutters; the other a bold statement piece of timber design with its groomed structural clean lines. A clever architectural feature of Tempel 74 is the strking structure which houses the underground ski and parking garage, an outdoor terrace, and the heart of the house, a spacious lounge-parlour connecting the two buildings. Here the typical home elements of a Bregenzerwald 'Stube' are imaginatively reconfigured: the corner seating, sideboards and traditional 'Kanapees'. At the centre point is the fireplace, library and a kitchen zone - this is where home is found.
