In November of 2010, Marc-Michaels Interior Design, Inc. was invited to design the interiors of Swiss Development Group’s latest resort destination, 51°. The mixed-use project will encompass full-ownership residences; condominium real estate; a five-star boutique hotel; recreational facilities including a spa, owners club, wine bar, retail and restaurants. Leukerbad, a quaint resort town of only 1,400 is located in Wallis, Switzerland. It has been known since the Roman times for its thermal waters that pour out at 51° Celsius, or 124° Fahrenheit.

The concept of the project is to celebrate the famous water both inside and out, starting with the project architect, Michael Graves, building the envelope in harmony with the site and surrounding village. The interior design will embrace a water theme throughout the project. Private residences will enjoy their own personal spa features in each suite. A public spa with a well-known operator will be incorporated in the design of the building. The five-star status of this getaway retreat will showcase the most luxurious materials including bronze, wool, leather, and rustic woods.
