In the heart of Switzerland’s Grisons Alps, you will find the spectacular spa complex of the 7132 Hotel. Architect Peter Zumthor wanted to highlight the area’s legendary thermal springs when designing the hotel. Raw concrete and 60,000 slabs of local quartzite stone were used to bring his design to life and the resulting look is one that is dramatic, modern and elegant.
