A cantilevered swimming pool, twenty-five meters long, where you can swim between earth and sky, lulled by the panoramic view of the Dolomites. The structure of the Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus Valdaora in the Puster Valley is not a mere water pool, but it is scenic and monumental and its strength lies in its materials and the modern design.
Specifically designed by the young architects of the studio noa* as part of the hotel's renovation, the structure, although supported by four metal struts lined with wood, seems to be suspended in a vacuum, at twelve feet from the ground. The ceramic tiles of the Amazonia Collection by Casalgrande Padana (in the 60x60 format and “Dragon Black” shades) have been chosen for the structure in order to perfectly fit in the surrounding territory.
One of the central themes of the project is in fact the organic search for the best relationship between construction and nature, which is also evident in the striking opening on the bottom that guarantees a 360 ° view.
