The most valuable characteristic of this hilly plot of land in Walkeweg, Switzerland is its beautiful view of the Alps, so when designing a new construction hotel our main focus was to maximize this asset, thus also maximizing potential profit.We achieve this by carefully placing the buildings towards the best orientation.
In the hotel building, the service areas are located in the back of the semi-underground levels, in order to free up the southern facade for the studio apartments. The access level has a large lobby overseeing the hills, and the level immediately above houses the restaurant and a generous terrace. Four three-level residential buildings complete the complex.
