Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) unveil their design for the new Audemars Piguet Hôtel des Horlogers in the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland right next to the Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet set to open in 2020. The new hotel zig zags through the valley landscape, allowing guests to ski down the roof and out into the wild. Get your cross-country skiing skills ready by the opening in 2020!
Neighboring the Audemars Piguet Museum, the Hotel des Horlogers is seamlessly integrated into the smooth topography of the scenic Vallée de Joux. Five zigzagging room slabs expand into a gently sloping exterior path, leading directly to the museum and local ski trails. On the interior, a continuous sloping corridor connects the rooms, facilitating visitor and service circulation. The amenities—two restaurants, a bar, a spa and a conference center—are tucked under the inclined slabs and oriented towards light and views to become individual destinations along the exterior path. From the main access road, the hotel’s tilting slabs frame views of the surrounding Vallée de Joux, establishing a connection between the village and the pastoral landscape.
