BIG, Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet in Le Brassus (Switzerland)

 
The Musée Atelier Audemars Piguet is located within the famous luxury watch manufacturer’s historical complex of workshops and factories. It reflects the innovative spirit of the firm – which has successfully maintained its autonomy as a family enterprise – and is rooted in the culture and nature of La Vallée de Joux. The layout is based on a visitor route that presents the history and process of watchmaking and threads the different parts of the program in a continuous sequence. This strategy is materialized in a half-buried double spiral that is striking yet subtle, functional yet sculptural.

In the year 2017, Audemars Piguet commissioned BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group to build a hotel close to the museum, which will open in the summer of 2021.
