Etre archi bien

A travel and get-away guide.
Nine exceptional addresses and uplifting experiences created by some of the big names in architecture and design across Europe: France, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
Hotels like no others with their own star system...
 
Elciego with F.O. Gehry, Lucerne with Jean Nouvel, Amsterdam with MVRDV, Vigilius with Matteo Thun, Vals with Peter Zumthor, Paris with Christophe Pillet, Barcelona with Fernando Amat and Jordi Tiò, Hasparren and Frankfurt : 
nine stop-overs where contemporary architecture rime with serenity, selfcare, decompression and pleasures of the table. 

More than a directory of dream places, it is a thought about a new conception of the
hotel trade: how architecture can centre the landscape, which architectural details and which materials can provide unforgettable feelings, and a focus on people whose passion is to take care of us.
This book, which is the first of a full collection, will take you around Europe and help you to choose a high quality stay, basing itself on uncommon standards : the junction between architecture and design, the quality of the meeting and of the table, and the view to the well-being of the visitor.   
We hope that this book will stimulate a new generation of hotels to leave the stereotypes of the traditional luxury hotel trade.
 
Have a nice trip...
