Appreciation towards MARIO BOTTA ARCHITETTI for providing the following description:

Berg Oase健康中心紧靠五星级的Tschuggen大酒店,地处森林环绕的自然盆地之中。建筑大部分隐藏于地下,减少地面露出部分,保护美丽的景观并向周围的村庄表达尊重之意。

The wellness centre Berg Oase stands next to the five-star Tschuggen Grand Hotel, in a natural basin surrounded by a forest. The choice to place most of the building underground was a way to reduce the surface above ground, to preserve an extraordinary part of the landscape and to establish a respectful relationship with the nearby village.

Nine large skylights made of titanium zinc and glass emerge from the ground and represent the only signs of the hypogeal construction, which, if built on the surface, would have altered the relationship with the landscape.
The choice of affecting the territory as little as possible led to the reduction of the excavation works, adapting the disposition of the spaces to the natural layout of the mountain.

The wellness centre spreads over four levels visually linked to each other. On the first level are the fitness facilities, the technical rooms and the entry for the external guests; on the second level are the cabins for beauty treatment. The third level represents the entrance level connected to the hotel via a glass bridge. Here there are the reception, guest cloakrooms, and the “sauna world”. The fourth level houses the “water world”. The exterior sauna, solarium, and swimming pool are on a large terracing in direct relationship with nature.

The aim of the project ensures not only the enjoyment of body treatments, but also an emotional experience that combines the sense of contemplation and protection with the perception and the sharing of nature.
