As a film backdrop the Kärnten dream castle flickered across the screens in all four corners of the earth.

Last year it was comprehensively revitalised and extended. Today, Castle Velden is a five-star Capella Hotel offering every conceivable comfort. The Synthesa Group supplied facade and interior paints as well as the thermal insulation system.

The order for the painting work was shared by the Upper Austrian painters Otto Hirsch working in co-operation with the painters Fina, Sucher and Pugganig (Purpurrot Group), all from Kärnten. As on their other construction sites throughout Europe, Hirsch also worked here with materials from Synthesa and Caparol. With the castle facade with its traditional "Schönbrunn yellow" the exterior lime paint "Meradur", for example, was used. It most closely resembles the historical pit lime colour and is particularly suitable for the fields of application involved here. In the interior the painters mainly worked with "Primalon Interior Dispersion Extra" from Synthesa. This interior paint bears the official OFI test seal "Allergy tested, pollutant tested and physiologically harmless" and is therefore particularly well suited for public areas.

Also originating from the Synthesa Group was the Capatect thermal insulation system that provides optimum thermal insulation in the loggias of the new wing which is of modern design. This wing also contains the luxury hotel suites and the 3500 m2 wellness area. The thermal insulation system was realised by the company, Bauer Fassades from Ulrichsberg in Upper Austria.
