Studio Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners completed the Eden Hotel, opened in February 2012 in Bormio, Italy. The project consists of a series of buildings, characterized by height and narrowness, creating an original visual effect.
The units which make up the hotel are individually covered in wood and feature roof shingles, which adds extra originality to their design. Here is some further information from the architects: “Considering the plan, the aggregation of several units made it possible to distribute the space with exterior two-entrance staircases, thus exploiting the interval between buildings and making transversal crossings more animated. The building technology aims at maximizing the passive heat exchange of buildings through the use of super-insulating packages around the perimeters, through the climate mitigation capability of the loggias in the windows and the top performance glass-panels.”
The interior design blends traditional elements with all the comfort of modern living, creating a welcoming environment for mountain enthusiasts worldwide. To top it all, floor-to-ceiling windows ensure unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape.
