Montfort Castle

Awakened from
deep slumber

A buil­ding like some­thing out of a fairy tale: Mont­fort Cast­le in Lan­genar­gen on Lake Con­s­tance shows what has long lain dor­mant – archi­tec­tu­ral grace. In the 19th cen­tu­ry, the cast­le recei­ved its name from King Wil­helm I. Over the cen­tu­ries, the pro­per­ty, built in the extre­me­ly rare Moo­rish style, ser­ved as a magni­fi­cent vil­la, guest­house, spa and even office buil­ding. We were allo­wed to make our con­tri­bu­ti­on to the pre­ser­va­ti­on of this gem – with loving res­to­ra­ti­ons and matching gra­phic works across seve­ral media.

Strategy & Consulting

High­light­ing hid­den tre­asu­res to crown them. Rea­li­se new spaces at the same time. Com­bi­ning the endu­ring with the new. On and off­line. In the time-hono­u­red cel­lar walls of Mont­fort Cast­le, we have crea­ted a sty­lish wine bar that not only reflects the ele­gant cha­rac­ter of the buil­ding, but also allows you to expe­ri­ence it with all your sen­ses. Here, the joy of enjoy­ment is pou­red and hos­pi­ta­li­ty is cele­bra­ted. We have also trans­la­ted this con­cept into a new web­site. This way, you can revel in times long past, even bey­ond the country’s borders.

Gastronomy architecture

A deli­cious feast for the eyes is like a good drop for the throat. We have com­bi­ned both in the gas­tro­no­my archi­tec­tu­re – in the base­ment we crea­ted a sty­lish and tim­e­l­ess wine bar. For this, we unco­ver­ed parts of the exis­ting cel­lar walls and added natu­ral and pure mate­ri­als such as wood, steel and brass. In addi­ti­on, mini­ma­list fur­ni­tu­re that does not ste­al the show but sty­lish­ly under­lines the room’s ori­gi­nal cha­rac­ter. Full-bodi­ed aes­the­tics also in the walk-in wine sto­rage, which can be used for small but fine wine, whis­key and diges­tif tastings. Or for various fes­ti­vi­ties that call for a spe­cial set­ting. Wine cel­lar with lake ter­race – any­thing but ordinary!

Communication design

We also appli­ed fine aes­the­tics to the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on of Mont­fort Cast­le. Start­ing with the rede­sign of the exis­ting logo, to a house font in kee­ping with the hotel’s sta­tus, which is only too hap­py to be unders­tood as a visi­ble pro­mi­se. One that is repea­ted in the food and drink menus as well as in adver­ti­se­ments and fly­ers. A jour­ney of plea­su­re for the eye that extends to the most tas­teful cor­ners of the wine bar.

Web design

A modern plat­form for a cast­le stee­ped in tra­di­ti­on. We staged the new web­site with the same atten­ti­on to detail that we find in the maje­s­tic rooms them­sel­ves. Honest, pure and appro­pria­te for today’s digi­tal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on – yet with a nost­al­gic touch. A new dimen­si­on for a place who­se magic is not only tan­gi­ble offline.
