An holistic project, dedicated to the well-being of body and spirit, achieved through an engaging architecture to be felt and experienced.

 

 

White Wolf Hotel is a series of buildings intimately related with the surrounding rich natural environment. The architecture concept is a realization of the holistic pretensions of the client. The volumes, profoundly integrated in the natural context, aim to provide holistic and spiritual experiences of calm, intimacy, meditation and retreat.

Instead of a single construction condensing the entire program, the adopted strategy aimed to spread the facilities through separated buildings along the site, adapting itself to the existing natural conditions, respecting and enhancing its values. Thus providing a more rich living experience, full of distinct moments and sensations.
