Modern Times Hotel

Modern Times Hotel

Project description

Embedded with great care in its surroundings

The name of the hotel is a reference to Chaplin who lived in the neighbouring town of Corseaux. The hotel is linked to the Chaplin museum. Studies analysed the topography, ecology and noise emissions to ensure that the hotel blends per-fectly with its surroundings. The totality fits in with a natural and architectural self-confidence. The z-shaped outline gives the building its special dynamic. The structure of the façades is linear and gives the building a contemporary feel while making a playful impression. This is due to the arrangement of the windows which creates an attractive interplay between the tinted glass panes. The hotel consists of three floors with 138 rooms. The restaurant and conference rooms are on the publicly accessible ground floor.
