ARCHITECTURE . university project > Spa and Hotel in Vallemaggia






site plan




concept in section

concept of lower building; cutouts of sculpture-like geometry
another recent architecture project which I did together with Sebastian C. 
we designed a spa hotel in the Ticino region of Switzerland. One building is situated down at the valley directly at the Maggia river, and the other above the very extreme cliff atop the mountain ridge on a small plateau to accentuate the extreme nature and the aspects and atmosphere that comes with both territories. The lower building contains the spa area and restaurant, as well as the main hotel. The top building is a smaller version without the spa and a small amount of hotel rooms. Both sites are in a constant dialogue with each other. Our architecture enhances this communication and bilateral condition of the surrounding nature, trying to fortify and accentuate the extreme situation and phenomenon.
