The Aquamotion complex is located in a small valley between two stations of the famous ski resort, Courchevel 1650 and Courchevel 1850. The place is truly unique: on one side of the building there is a spectacular meadow with a small river, on the other, a beautiful view of the wooded mountains opens up. It is not surprising that the architects of the Munich branch of Auer Weber tried to disturb the natural landscape as little as possible, making their building an integral part of it.
The main instrument of mimicry is the roof rising from the ground with a smooth, soft bend. Using the natural height difference, it forms a kind of cave, opening towards the road with glass walls that are permeable to the eyes. In winter, the roof is covered with snow, resembling mountain slopes and trails, and in summer it is covered with green grass, like the famous alpine meadows. But the natural landscape should not be flat and the relief of the roof is complicated by several different-sized "caves" in the form of semicircular windows. They are finished in wood and are facing south to fill the rooms with light and sun as much as possible.
The inner space of the center (its usable area is 10,000 m2) is divided into two main zones, but this division is rather arbitrary, since all rooms smoothly flow into one another and actively interact. The first tier is where entertainment is concentrated. A variety of slides, a swimming pool, a surf pool, a children's paddling pool, an outdoor heated pool, bar, climbing wall and other activities create a rich environment that is comfortable for everyone. The second tier includes several more intimate zones designed to maximize the relaxation of the visitor. This is facilitated by: a salt water pool hidden in a darkened cave, as well as massage rooms, saunas, Turkish baths and with them a second, outdoor pool, already with cold water. On the upper level, right next to the panoramic glass wall, there is a restaurant with 300 seats. And, of course, there is a spacious underground parking for visitors.
