Martin Brudnizki brings village feel to new Six Senses ski resort and residences

by Megan Whitby | 24 Sep 2019

Swedish architect Martin Brudnizki has revealed plans for the new Six Senses Kitzbühel alpine resort and residences.

The resort, owned and developed by Walther Staininger, is scheduled to open in December 2021 and will include a Six Senses hotel with extensive spa and wellness offerings, apartments and chalet residences. Playful elements will see residents able to dine in an igloo.

Six Senses Kitzbühel is located in the Austrian Hohe Tauern National Park and Brudnizki’s designs have been inspired by the location’s natural beauty and regional traditions. His concept brings the outside in to create a sense of nature within the living spaces and is focused on creating a village feel.

The new property has been planned with sustainability at its core, using local and organic materials in construction, locally-sourced home-grown ingredients at the property’s restaurants and providing an on-site farmers market for guests.

Six Senses has partnered exclusively with Porsche to supply a Porsche Taycan – Porsche’s first electric sports car – to everyone who purchases a top of the line chalet.

Six Senses Kitzbühel will be an outdoor activities destination, offering downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and sledging in the winter, as well as hiking, cycling and swimming during the summer.

The resort’s spa will have indoor and outdoor pools, a holistic anti-ageing centre, a children’s spa and a bio-hack lab.

Additionally, the Austrian property will have four restaurants – The Tavern, The Kitchen, The Cabin Bar and The Pantry. Six Senses will also offer alternative dining experiences, where residents can enjoy dinner served in tree pods and igloos.

The hotel will have 77 rooms and suites, while the 15 chalets and 45 apartments will be available to be purchased with prices ranging from €1.5 million to €5.5 million (£1,324,013 to £4,854,328, $1,646,167 to $6,035,595).
