In the secluded mountain village of Vals Switzerland, 4 leading architects have created a series of hotel rooms that provide visitors with a new kind of luxury experience. The latest addition to the hotel, dubbed The House of Architects at 7132 Hotel, is designed by Morphosis—a leading collective practice founded by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne that is renowned for its high performance sustainable design and technological innovation. In addition to the rooms designed by Morphosis, the House of Architects also includes rooms designed by Tadao Ando, Kengo Kuma and Peter Zumthor.

Wrapping visitors in locally-sourced natural materials, the rooms draw inspiration from the incredible mass of alpine rock, earth, and greenery of the surrounding Valser vally and include unique sculptural pieces custom-designed for the space. At the heart of the room is the double-curved, hot-bent shower piece designed by Morphosis and fabricated by Cricursa in Barcelona that stands in contrast to the room’s natural surfaces.

In 2015, Morphosis was also selected to design a new luxury hotel as part of the 7132 complex in Vals. The project will feature: a transparent 1,250 foot tower blending with the mountain landscape and including 107 guest rooms with panoramic views; a podium linking the building with neighboring structures—including the House of Architects; a cantilever containing a restaurant, café, spa, and bar; and public amenities shared with the town.
