The project is expressed as a collection of small volumes and refers to the densely built cottages forming hamlets and traditional villages. However, it provides a free interpretation by reminding a visitor the characteristic hotel buildings of Leysin: a large house consisting of several small volumes. The project is built on the natural flat area at the top of the building site. This elevation of the building provides an amazing visual relationship of the mountains and the background.
This separation also allows the construction of an entry, generated by the volume and its ground floor, together with all functional amenities. The large window length and the adjoining terrace suggest the Community nature of this construction. They highlight the panoramic views from the dining and living hall. Each room has a shower and a separate bathroom as well as two bunk beds in order to produce a space for relaxation. The bunk beds offer a “highly mountain” style and creates ample space. The traditional and innovative choice of linking these small simple volumes, geometrically and rigorously built emphasizes the place and the nature of the services on offer.
