Matteo Thun and Merano‘s Design Hotel

"Our daily life is determined to a significant extent by the architecture that surrounds us every day."– Jürgen Tietz


In his design, Milan-based star architect Matteo Thun placed South Tyrolean materials center stage. His reinterpretation of the local alpine architectural style lends the hotel a novel identity. The concept harkens back to traditional local forms and materials, uniting them with modular interior elements and thus creating a connection between the two formal languages using strong juxtaposition.

Matteo Thun builds upon the appeal of fine natural materials like wood and stone. He skillfully brings together South Tyrolean history, classic elegance, the boldness of the avant-garde and stylized local objects. The wooden floors in the rooms draw attention to the materials themselves and to the place itself. Alpine references are omnipresent. Elegant hardwood floors grace the hotel, while the rooms and suites feature desks with leather or cowhide accents, lighting fixtures in the form of deer’s heads, with real horns and gold coating, and crystal chandeliers with Swarovski jewels. Thun combines colorful accessories with precious, natural materials like wood and stone, creating a welcoming atmosphere with a strikingly luxurious feel.

Matteo Thun developed integrated unique concept here as well: reinterpretation of the alpine style with the help of strong juxtaposition. Dark colors like Bordeaux red are not only in keeping with the times, but also lend a feeling of true luxury.

The hotel rooms feature either a wood-paneled loggia or a French balcony, once again underlining South Tyrol’s deep-rooted connection to nature. In addition to 139 rooms and suites, the hotel offers gourmet food at its Mediterranean Olivi Restaurant, which features a show kitchen, and at its fashion-forward Bistro La Piazza.

Olivi Restaurant is characterized by a bright atmosphere and clean lines. The rear part of the restaurant is a play of contrasts: luxury and simplicity, theatricality and balance, exaggeration and irony. The elegant lobby bar, Palm Lounge, is an inviting place to relax and stay awhile, offering an open fireplace and indoor terrace as well as a modern library.
