Wellness as a new tradition

Cuddly wellness cocoon

The Swiss town of Pontresina still lives a strong tradition - which may also be due to the fact that it is surrounded by breathtaking mountain peaks. For the wellness oasis in the basement of a Pontresina house, it was therefore clear that it should create references to nature and alpine culture. And the sauna area succeeds in this design challenge, without any grand gestures.

Well-being place thanks to light art

The space for this wellness zone is relatively small, so that it does not feel cramped, the experts from Emulsion Interior Design conjured with indirect light: Cleverly placed light bands, a distinctive floor lamp, which scatters light upwards and downwards, as well as daylight falling through a window cheat the relax room larger. For privacy, but above all for more coziness, the window was faced with larch wood slats.

Regional Relax Helpers

Subtle references to alpine culture, its nature, but also architecture can be found everywhere in this relaxation zone: The wooden slats in front of the window, for example, have decorative recesses, as is familiar from the region's artistically carved balconies. The sauna walls are clad with Vals quartzite stone and the loungers are covered with wonderfully fragrant Swiss stone pine. Alpine natural materials, a homely atmosphere and the warmth of the sauna keep users safe here.

The relaxation room and sauna merge seamlessly into one another in this wellness zone. This is achieved by using the same stone on the floor and walls - and the Vals quartzite used in the sauna cabin also continues outside. The special feature of this sauna, however, is the Swiss stone pine wood with which it is lined. The "health wood" has proven positive effects on the human organism, its essential oils and antibacterial effect also make it the ideal sauna wood.
