Set in an unrivalled location, directly on the banks of Lake Hallwil, lies Seerose – a popular tourist destination between Zurich and Bern.

The existing accommodation of Classic and Elements has now been expanded with a third force – the Cocon Spa Hotel – complementing the amenities already offered by Seerose, with the inclusion of an indoor swimming pool, spa facilities, an additional restaurant and 32 suites. Seminar rooms and underground parking complete the offering.

This new facility will have two primary focuses: the well-being and relaxation of guests and the creation of an atmosphere and mood truly reminiscent of Thailand.

In designing this building, we had to contend with its location and the traditional buildings around Lake Hallwil. And so, guided by the perspectives of the Seerose concept, we delved deeper and deeper into the resort and its history to discover the strange in the familiar. Its colours, surfaces, textures, reflections and spatial effects evoke the impression of Thailand, with the décor so authentically Asian that we were almost fooled ourselves.
