the building is arranged to gently slope with the gradient of the mountain and complemented by garden covered terraces and green roofs. overlooking lake lucerne, water from the lake itself will be used to cool the building’s internal technologies. instilling a restful and comfortable ambiance, the complex will offer 161 suites along with generous space dedicated to wellness, medical services and spa facilities, all of which immersed in a backdrop of lush forestry, fresh air and breathtaking views.
