Reinhard Strasser designs luxurious Alpine retreat with hypoxic chamber

Interior designer Reinhard Strasser has created a new Alpine retreat in the Austrian mountains, featuring a high-altitude hypoxic chamber which can be used by professional athletes.

The hotel, called Blumen Haus Lech, will launch in the village of Lech in December 2016. It is being funded by British businessman Andrew Flowers, who wants to “raise the bar for boutique hotels in Austria” and offer a luxury stopover for skiers in the area.

The retreat will have nine super-suites with private balconies, a fine dining restaurant, a contemporary art gallery and ski amenities developed in partnership with high-end ski brand Indigo.

The building is clad with reclaimed wood from the Tyrolian region and has a copper roof according to Alpine tradition. In contrast, modern touches include furnishings from Italian studio Minotti and iPad wall activations that control the lighting, air conditioning and heating in the rooms.

Wellness facilities at Blumen Haus Lech will include a spa treatment suite, hair salon, indoor infinity pool with a current stream and whirlpool, two saunas and a steam room. Athletes and the super-fit can take a break from the slopes to use the Technogym and cardio area, or train at an altitude of 5,600m (18,400ft) in the hypoxic chamber.
