MAD Aparthotel on Alps

michelezagoarchitetti as Architects

A charming four-storey flat hotel building becomes an oasis of comfort and beauty in the picturesque alpine setting of Disentis, surrounded by other similarly shaped wooden houses. This building is distinguished by its white colour and numerous openings overlooking the valley, offering guests a breathtaking panoramic view, blending perfectly into the surrounding landscape. Each room has a private bathroom, offering privacy and comfort to guests during their stay. In addition, each floor has a small communal kitchen and for added convenience, each floor also has a laundry room, allowing guests to have access to amenities without having to leave their floor. Entrance to the building is from above, via a series of stairs leading to the ground floor level. This arrangement allows guests to be greeted with a panoramic view and immediately enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. As well as being functional, the staircases add character to the building, creating a unique experience for guests.

The building's pitched roof maintains the same conformation as the surrounding houses, thus respecting the traditional aesthetics of Alpine architecture. The structure of the roof is covered with tiles, a rustic and elegant touch that contributes to a warm and cosy atmosphere in harmony with the surrounding mountain environment.
