The Five Elements in our rooms - Balance between the basic elements

Scroll down

To ensure the wellbeing of the guests the rooms at Hotel Emmy are designed according to the doctrine of the five elements wood, fire, earth, metal and water

The basic idea behind the construction of the hotel was to design more than just a room, but a holiday “atelier”, because you are not only here to sleep! From the first moment you should have that “special” holiday feeling.

The doctrine of the five elements is based on five energetically vital basic elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. They are known as the fundamental forces of nature which mutually strengthen and weaken each other. The balance comes from their harmonious interaction and can only be maintained the same way.
Everything that lives, moves and changes, as well as the seemingly inanimate, is subject to constant change and needs these five elements in order to exist.

WOOD
For the construction of the hotel was used native wood such as larch, pine, oak and massive walnut. This timber structure reflects our strength and durability, therefore has been chosen the same line for the whole interior from floor to ceiling.
Wood energy is movement, rising, a new beginning such as the morning and spring. In humans you recognize it as future dreams, making plans and as determination which we need for the important decisions in life.
The wood element is associated with the color green. This wall color in combination with our mud walls stands for naturalness, hope, freshness, health and represents nature and life. Because of the shortest wavelength in the color spectrum, green has the strongest relaxation effect.

FIRE
In our room you are caressed by the warm indirect light which provides the particular comfort factor – an additional highlight is the “luminous flame” on the wooden wall.
Fire is related to the life stage of training and development; it also represents midday and summer with the sun at its zenith. Fire type people are enthusiastic and have lust to life and love.
The Fire’s obvious color is red. The earthy reddish primary color chosen for the walls in our rooms and public areas creates the desired warm atmosphere to relax and feel comfortable.

EARTH
Healthy living is more popular than ever – for this the natural product clay has been chosen for our walls. It contributes to the pleasant room climate by regulating the humidity, especially in combination with our wall heating system. Positive side effects are the binding of pollutants, protection against electromagnetic pollution and absorption of odors.
The Earth element is linked to the late summer and the afternoon, the process of maturation and the adulthood as well as to the human characteristics such as reason, care, helpfulness and concentration.

METAL
The iron framework of our television and the copper fountain represent the metals in our rooms. This element stands symbolically for the process of refining of ores to high-quality metals.
Metal is the source of such emotions as selfless and fair behavior, generosity, concentration on the essential, but also dolefulness, hopelessness and selfishness.

WATER
Sprung at the foot of the mountain massif Sciliar the pure spring water „Schlernbluat“ (blood of the Sciliar) comes through a special pipeline directly to the copper fountains in our rooms.
The cold winter is the energy of the element Water, the time of rest and hibernation, when nature retreats to guild up its reserves for its next cycle or seasons. It is also symbolic of the depth, the dark, the unconscious as well as the effortless power of a flowing river which makes quietly its way to the sea.


All these natural materials have been carefully chosen and just as much important was the highest quality craftsmanship to us.
