Hotel Camp Zero

Information

Hotel CampZero is located in Champoluc, at the foot of Monte Rosa, and is the first Active Luxury Resort in the Aosta Valley for mountain, sport and well-being enthusiasts, where natural elements and an attention to detail come together in an extremely high-impact design that offers a unique and avant-garde experience. This “sports” hotel, comprising 30 rooms of different types spanning two levels, a 25-metre pool, a well-being area, a fitness room, an indoor climbing gym and, in winter, a real ice waterfall down one of the external walls of the building, to be climbed in piolet traction, was the brainchild of former Fastweb owner Scaglia and his wife Monica, who fell in love with the Valley and particularly Ayas, the valley in which Champoluc lies. A significant investment of 15 million Euro for a brand-new project, developed by the Architettura Bladidea Studio according to innovative yet also very naturalistic criteria. The architecture fits perfectly with the alpine environment. The relatively modest built-up area comprises traditional medium-sized buildings, while the ground floor is situated below a Y-shaped “slab” with green coverage, the central section of which lifts up and links to the natural terrain at the three extremities, making the most of the morphology. The slab is then intersected by a multifunctional central space, the “rock”, into which three blocks of ten bedrooms converge, its external walls partially used for the winter ice climbing (piolet traction). The final result is that of a complex with a discontinuous skyline, the volumes of which integrate with the natural surroundings without removing the fringe between meadow and wood, in line with the development of some alpine villages around erratic rocks, the homes built up against them.
