Situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Six Senses Crans-Montana project is inscribed in the site as a powerful, tectonic structure. We studied the perception of the surrounding mountains, mirroring the natural environment to design a project that integrates into the landscape. The hotel accommodation and facilities are grouped together in the central 6-storey core structure which forms an elevated platform with two chalet-inspired residential buildings above. This platform provides panoramic views of the mountains from the bar, the outdoor swimming pool and lounge areas fitted out with log fires and a film projection station.
The building does not impose itself on the landscape but provides a framing of the environment through a play of perspectives and openings on to the exteriors. The interiors are based on a refined elegance using natural materials such as leather, wood and stone that reflect and dialogue with the surrounding nature. Six Senses Crans-Montana is a project balancing a strong aesthetic presence, respect for the environment and architecture that truly belongs in its site where the ‘ski-in and ski-out’ experience complements the extensive wellness spa
