ELEMENTS – Medical Wellness Hotel (study)

The spectacular view over Lake Lugano and the Alps turns this place into a unique location that has something to offer at any time of the year. The central theme is natural purity in an ancient landscape. The connection between the natural landscape and the Medical Wellness offering and the history of the nearby spa hotel creates a travel destination that offers isolation, spiritual balance, physical well-being and exclusivity. The Medical Wellness Resort is based on this balance and the strong connection to the surrounding elements, such as the forest, the spectacular view over the lake, the ancient land of earth and stone, the sky and the sun, the cultivated ground, and the nearby church. There is a subtle transition between the untouched and developed landscape of the hotel complex, which becomes part of the existing network of pathways. The direct and indirect experience of the surrounding elements can be felt anywhere in the hotel – in the spa areas, the guest rooms, the restaurants and the gardens.
