Wood from the Vallée de Joux and concrete from the Jura lakes
The construction of the Hôtel des Horlogers, the high engineering object that has just opened its doors in Le Brassus, is based on the appropriate use of local materials specifically selected for the project. The visible timber the roofs originates from the Grands Plats forests in the municipality of Le Chenit. The exposed concretes are made from natural aggregates from the Jura lakes in neighboring France. These authentic structures, carefully designed by our engineers, contribute to the warm atmosphere experienced by the visitors.
