VERDICT

It is placed in a valuable natural environment, and the project manages to make the most of it with installations that partake in the surroundings. The open feeling continues indoors, where the wellness areas are visually connected between them without sacrificing privacy. Natural materials and very simple yet suggestive lines set the overall mood.

DESCRIPTION

Conversion of an old sports facility in a wellness centre with spa, gym, climbing wall, therapy and cosmetic facilities, relaxation area, restaurant and a multipurpose auditorium. The materials chosen have a low visual impact and are harmonious with the high mountain environment in which the facility is located.
