The Stud Farm Lipica is one of Slovenia's most remarkable natural and cultural monuments. Hotel Maestoso is located in this idyllic setting of cultivated karst landscape. The basic guideline in designing the renovation and expansion of the hotel was to find a way to tone down the building's presence in the space. The new wooden structural membrane enveloping the entire hotel establishes a sort of intermediate space between the buildings and the landscape. The interiors of the renovated hotel are designed as a modern interpretation of the horse-stable interior spaces.
