Hôtel Bivouac
05/2020
Tenigerbad, CH
Bastian Marzoli

HOTEL BIVOUAC is mainly an infrastructural intervention.

By creating an elevated platform where needed, the project secures the building while redefining the spaces and providing an imaginative use of the condition that was born from the ruins.

This addition is constructed in steel and is anchored to the masonry walls, which reinforces the bearing structure of the building by recreating links that have been weakened by the rotting wood. 

The second part of the intervention consists of the rehabilitation of the east wing of the hotel, to provide a kitchen, a communal room, and sanitary facilities to visitors.

The ruins of HOTEL BIVOUAC acts as a shelter for a strange bivouac, allowing people to experience the hotel singularly, by camping in its abandoned rooms. Aside from its regular use as a bivouac, the hotel can be booked and used for special events, exhibitions, fashions shows, concerts, and so on...

The absence of predefined functions and the cold practicality of the infrastructure allows for a wide array of appropriation.
