Seminar and group rooms in line with nature

Meetings amidst green surroundings – that’s what the newly built seminar building at Hotel Hof Weissbad offers. K&L Architekten designed the single-storey timber construction. Blumer Lehmann contributed to the seminar building’s success with its execution of the entire timber construction, including the facade and interior finishing with panelling and perforated ceilings.

The location in the hotel grounds on the headland between Weissbach and Schwendebach and the execution as a pure timber construction lend the seminar building a special ambience and a pleasant indoor climate.

The new building stands on a concrete slab with a surrounding plinth wall that protects the building from any streams that could burst their banks. The main supporting structure consists of a visible post-and-mullion construction built from spruce and fir. Conventionally constructed from individual parts, frame walls were subsequently added to complement the main supporting structure. Spruce was also used for the rooms’ interior finishing featuring high windows and ridge heights of up to 6.8 m. As with the newly constructed bathhouse, the wooden surfaces inside the seminar building were also treated with UV-VP-Shield as part of a pilot test.

Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Alpstein massif from the spacious foyer, which is the centrepiece of the seminar building. The building has two large seminar rooms, two group rooms, toilets, technical and material rooms and a canteen spanning a total floor area of 440 m2.
