The design of the spa in Active Park Schruns Tschagguns follows an integrative approach of the new building of the spa experience at various levels with the surrounding landscape in the comparison.
Nestled in the mountains of the Montafon valley is parallel to the structure of the Ill river from. In this compact volume is an inner landscape created in the different bathing - at staggered levels - spacious stairways physically and visually linked together. The spatial and tectonic structure evokes associations with natural forms of alpine and rock formed between hollow columns like due to erosion by water created from spatial continuum. In the interplay of introverted and extroverted various geographic areas are situations that are always new vistas to the surrounding panorama mediate.
The encounter with the element water is closely connected with the experience of mountain scenery.
