Hotel Tofana in St. Kassian, Italy, owned by Gunther and Verena Frena, has been redesigned by the architecture company, noa* (network of architecture). The two toned, exterior silhouette of the building was designed to mimic the tops of the Dolomite mountains that grace the landscape around the hotel.

Terraces and balconies are lined with coniferous trees and plants, which are connected by vertical ramps and stairs, create an illusion of a summit for the hotel.
