The stunningly harmonious blend of contemporary and modern architecture makes for interesting contrasts all over Vorarlberg. Design does not follow fashion, but strives for timeless beauty. Buildings fit seamlessly into the landscape and live up to highest aesthetical and ecological standards.
Design with a difference
Vorarlberg's contemporary architecture is genuinely striking. Using mostly timber, architects and craftspeople reinvent building traditions. With their clear lines, the new buildings are downright eye-catchers, whilst seamlessly blending into the surroundings. The interior design is unmatched in its elaborate sophistication. Low-energy design is a matter of course, as much as ecologically-minded furniture and materials. This is where the craftspeople come in. Matching the modern architecture, relying on age-old techniques, and with a good measure of creativity and imagination, they design tables and chairs, beds and lounges, shelves and cupboards, and a lot more. The result is living spaces that are not only beautiful to look at, but pleasant to dwell in. Vorarlberg has long garnered a reputation for its wealth of architecturally outstanding buildings and as a model region for energy efficient and ecological building.
