Pretzhof Gasteig

The Pretzhof in Gasteig is a mixed-use building in the immediate vicinity of Sterzing. It comprises a slaughterhouse, rooms for further processing of the meat, a large wine store, a bistro, a shop for the in-house products and an excellent selection of wines, several offices and a flat. The distinctive dark structure was clad with a vertical wooden shell made of brushed and burnt boards of larch. This gives the building a very homogeneous appearance and is reminiscent of a function carried out inside: the traditional curing of the “Speck”. The dark colour is also found inside the building on the black acoustic ceiling. Wooden furniture in the shop and bistro provides a contrast to the dark special tiles on the walls, which emphasise the artisanal character of the use.
