In the heart of the West Styrian Region, very close to the stud of Piber with its famous Lipizzaner horses, the former Stoelzle mouth blowing factory received a new overall concept. The idea behind was to create a site based on four pillars: Glass Factory, Bed+Breakfast, Glass Museum and Glass Shop.
In 1988, as a part of the Styrian national Exhibition „Glass & Coal“ the architect Prof. DI Klaus Kada created a home for a Glass shop and Museum. Kada used the old generator house of the Stoelzle glassworks as the core building, encased it on three sides with new elements and thus demonstrated the potential of modern glass construction technology.
The Bed+Breakfast disposes of 10 rooms, which have been furnished in a very purist style in order to blend perfectly with the renowned Glass Centres straight architecture. The location aims to attract business travellers as well as tourists.
Since 2011 Stoelzle supports the Austrian Association “Kunstfabrik Lipizzanerheimat”, which resides in the premises of the former mouth blowing factory. Workshops and art lessons attract national and international artists from a wide range of art genres. Art works are shown regularly.
Founded in the mid of 13th century, Hotel Alexander is situated in the heart of the Czech town of Stříbro. Acquired by Stoelzle Glass Group in the nineties of the 20th century, it has been restored since then in order to become a modern location and jewel amongst the remarkable buildings of the town.
Stoelzle has joined the Germany based research association IPGR on order to liaise with internationally renowned glass manufacurers in the field of Research & Development. The purpose of the association is to increase and maintain the competitiveness of glass in the packing industry by research and development programs, the commercialisation of Research & Development results as well as individual cooperation between the members of the association.
