Hotel Camp Zero

Hotel CampZero is located in Champoluc, at the foot of Monte Rosa, and is the first Active Luxury Resort in the Aosta Valley for mountain, sport and well-being enthusiasts, where natural elements and an attention to detail come together in an extremely high-impact design that offers a unique and avant-garde experience.

This “sports” hotel, comprising 30 rooms of different types spanning two levels, a 25-metre pool, a well-being area, a fitness room, an indoor climbing gym and, in winter, a real ice waterfall down one of the external walls of the building, to be climbed in piolet traction, was the brainchild of former Fastweb owner Scaglia and his wife Monica, who fell in love with the Valley and particularly Ayas, the valley in which Champoluc lies.

A significant investment of 15 million Euro for a brand-new project, developed by the Architettura Bladidea Studio according to innovative yet also very naturalistic criteria.

 

The architecture fits perfectly with the alpine environment. The relatively modest built-up area comprises traditional medium-sized buildings, while the ground floor is situated below a Y-shaped “slab” with green coverage, the central section of which lifts up and links to the natural terrain at the three extremities, making the most of the morphology.

The slab is then intersected by a multifunctional central space, the “rock”, into which three blocks of ten bedrooms converge, its external walls partially used for the winter ice climbing (piolet traction).

The final result is that of a complex with a discontinuous skyline, the volumes of which integrate with the natural surroundings without removing the fringe between meadow and wood, in line with the development of some alpine villages around erratic rocks, the homes built up against them.

 

For this project, the Bladidea Studio opted to use very few materials, all rich in energy and style. Caesar proved to be the ideal partner for the elegant and functional dressing of the structure’s spaces, halls, bedrooms, bathrooms, sky room, service spaces and more besides, exploiting the vast range of looks and sizes available in the Made in Italy porcelain tile range.

The versatility of ceramic ensures aesthetic coherence with the countryside setting thanks to its ability to very realistically represent the environment with its colours, material inspiration and finishes. Stone, wood and metals serve as the inspiration for Caesar ceramics, the products retaining the natural look of the raw materials, and combining this with the functional and environmentally sustainable characteristics typical of made in Italy porcelain tile.

 

Stone, in its different essences, is a style chosen for many of the walls and floors in Hotel CampZero. The suggestive interpretation of Roxstones quartzite defines the bathroom and bedroom areas, while the Verse Blend Design, which draws on various finely chiselled stones, characterises the restaurant and kitchen. Stone also dominates in the technical variations used in the sky room, where the Lipico marble of Slab by Caesar Contract Solutions stands out, and the pool, where special pieces for the edge of the Aquae Wellness Project belong to the dedicated Absolute series.

The stylistic approach is rounded out with the Vibe wood-effect, used in the hall in various guises and shades, and the Trace metal effect in its Mint colour variant, of great visual impact.

 

The many aesthetic solutions offered by Caesar porcelain tile responded perfectly to the need for both high-level technological performance and environmental respect, two areas that Hotel CampZero includes among its main missions, thus making for a very valid partnership.

London's Skyline: how has it changed and how is it going to change again

 “I’ve been walking about London for the last thirty years, and I find something fresh in it every day”.

 

 This is how Walter Besant described London in 1896. A city with a thousand souls, contrasts and stories, always different, changing with the point of view of whoever looks at it. The aphorism is just as true now, for a city whose stylistic contradictions and architectural evolution will make any visitor fall in love with its many surprising perspectives.

 Caesar has played a pioneering role in this trendsetting city, aiming to capture its urban transformations and changes and translate them into cutting edge ceramic products. Since 2007 the Fiorano company has set down its roots in the British capital, first with the Design Center, a meeting point located in Covent Garden; then, in 2015, with the inauguration of its first ceramics showroom in London: the Urban Lab, located in the heart of the Clerkenwell design district, soon became a point of reference for designers and materials.

Classic Blue selected as Colour of 2020: Caesar ahead of the curve

For the last 20 years, the announcement of the colour of the year has been one of the most hotly anticipated moments in the calendar for designers and aficionados of style and design. The colour of year can be used as part of interior design projects to showcase their ability to reflect the latest sociological trends, or be incorporated into the home via smaller objects which keep our private spaces in sync with developing styles.

Since 2000, the company responsible for selecting the colour of the year has been Pantone, the US market leader in colour cataloguing and the inventor of the eponymous colour identification system.
