Espace Saint Marc in Châble

Location: Le Châble – a village below the ski resort of Verbier – Bagnes, Valais, Switzerland

Design: VOLTOLINI architectures sarl & Jean Paul Chabbey architectes SA

Espace St Marc Chable

The Espace St-Marc, a space for events and spectacles is located in the winding site of Dranse.

Espace St Marc Chable

Held in between two concrete blocks, the lobby and main hall open up towards a perspective of the valley. From the interior the windows frame for our benefit the contours of the Alpine landscape.

Espace St Marc Chable

The main hall offers a 900-sqm vast horizontal space, capable of holding a mobile 650-seat bleacher. Different spaces annexed to this main hall (lobby, projection room, assembly hall, etc.) allow, through the different levels a variety of multifunctional usages.

Espace St Marc Chable

While the materiality of the building interior is treated as light rather than color, with a combination of golden and warm tones that highlight the natural light of the whole.

Espace St Marc Chable

The overall volume is a single prism that combines the facades and roofs in a single composition and enveloping material.

Espace St Marc Chable

The stainless steel coating sometimes shiny and sometimes matte creates a subtle game that interacts with the surrounding environment.

Espace St Marc Chable

The material erases itself to express and reflect the surrounding context while the folds of the roof create a playful dialogue with the distant landscape and the mountainous « skyline » characteristic of the valley.
