Therme Vals | Peter Zumthor


This project was finished in 1996 and it’s no news, i know, but I simply want to have it on the blog because I love the project, so here it is. Built from the local stone, the building is located in a remote area high up in a mountain and is mimicking a cave. The soothing interior is designed for the soul with the help of some amazing lighting and water surfaces. I’m sure you all know a lot a bout it already so I won’t waste words on it and leave you with a slideshow (olotini Flickr album) and the Thermae of stone documentary. By far one of my favourite buildings probably ever built.

    A very special project and perfect construction with the combinations of the essential natural materials and the place character.
