Designed by Norbert Bergmann Kitzbühel, Austria

Vacation Chalet

Kitzbühel, Austria

For this Kitzbuhel, Austria home, Norbert Bergmann combined typically alpine design elements with European top brands. The result: a new and exciting combination of tried and tested features.

Flooring is the platform you build your interior on, so it has to be chosen with care.

A new blend

“The views of the Kaisergebirge, the ground plan with the living area on the second floor and the generous use of wood are all unmistakably Austrian”, says Bergmann. “But we got the furniture from Paris, London and Milan. It’s a thrill to make the different iconic designs work with the regional style, to make them blend into something new.”

Uncluttered look

Kitzbuhel is located in Tirol, which has a rich woodworking history. “The exposed structural beams in the house are very traditional”, says Bergmann. “I wanted to choose only one other type of wood to complement it, to keep the overall look uncluttered. I used to be a carpenter myself, so when I held the Hakwood product I saw the quality and realised the potential.”

Local craftsmanship

Bergmann used Hakwood as flooring – including in the bathroom – but he also used it as wall and chimney cladding. Bergmann: “We even had some of the furniture cladded with Hakwood. I did the drawings myself and had the woodwork done by a local carpenter. The combination of first class products and local craftsmanship – that’s our signature.”

The family wanted their alpine dream home. We helped them with everything, from finding the right lot to adding the last piece of furniture.
