Kräutergarten Biowipptal

Architekt Andreas Gruber as Architects

Nature work

The "Kräuterhof Biowipptal" in South Tyrol produces according to biological guidelines medicinal and aromatic herbs of the highest quality.


In support of this, a building was developed to facilitate the processing of herbs. The succession of clearly structured premises of a given size results in a compact building that was placed in the court ensemble instead of an agricultural machine hall. The hipped roof on average completes the typological image of the place.


Inspired by the texture of the forests and landscape, a façade was developed with the farm's own larch wood. Authentic, natural and expressive. The tree trunk was 100% processed without any leftovers and used specifically for qualities. This underlines once again the sustainable use of the ecological resource. The facade as a bark with hem, packs the ei-tual functions.


Since then, this alpine honesty has supported the marketing of the products.


The ants are synonymous with the nature-loving work and the tireless commitment to the highest quality of the products. The sculptures were made by the builders during the winter months, using raw wood blocks.
