The “Malat” vineyard and hotel emphasizes luxury without being boastful. This applies to both its striking, but restrained modern architecture and to the furnishing of the apartments and nine suites. TM-Architekten showed great sensitivity in converting the family-run boutique hotel, opting for simple materials that they combined tastefully and with great precision. For example, the natural stone for the facing masonry originated in the former potter’s house and now define part of the façade. The coarse stone goes hand in hand here with bright wood and large windows.

The suites are suffused with natural light and very spacious: The architects have forgone walls between the bedroom and bathroom areas; a gallery level offers guests a magnificent view of the vineyards. For anyone who might worry a bit with all this openness: The toilet is located behind a locking door. TM-Architekten chose to outfit the bathrooms with bright materials and a generously dimensioned on-top “Metaphor” series washbasin by Alape; its clear geometry serves to emphasize the precise details of the architecture. Thanks to the brilliant craftsmanship of the Goslar-based company, the refined washbasin is made of enameled steel that is a mere three millimeters thick. The Alape glaze ensures a pre-free surface, is especially easy to clean, and yet absolutely scratch- and shockproof. The purist washbasin is combined with Dornbracht mixers. The clear geometry of the “Metaphor” emphasizes the discerning formal vocabulary of the DornbrachtImo” mixers which blend a round body with a rectangular lever and spout. The architects erally focused on evey single detail, as becomes apparent when you see the exclusive “Malat” engraving that every Alape basin boasts. And should someone want a touch more individuality: for project assignments, personalized logos can also be created by lasering. (am)
