Project's Summary

Introducing the Espace Saint Marc: a Spectacular Venue for Events

Designed by the renowned architectural studio VOLTOLINI architectures, the Espace Saint Marc is a one-of-a-kind event space located in the picturesque setting of Dranse. Nestled between two concrete blocks, the venue offers a stunning view of the valley with its lobby and main hall opening up towards the breathtaking landscape. The space is perfect for various types of events and performances, making it a must-visit destination for anyone looking for a unique experience.

A Spacious Hall for Multifunctional Uses

With a whopping 9,700 square feet of space, the main hall of Espace Saint Marc offers a vast horizontal area that can hold a mobile 650-seat bleacher. Additionally, the venue has several annexed areas, such as the lobby, projection room, and assembly hall, that offer a variety of multifunctional usages. The different levels of the space allow for endless possibilities, making it an ideal location for concerts, exhibitions, conferences, and more.

A Playful and Interactive Design

The Espace Saint Marc is a single prism that combines the façades and roofs in a seamless composition. The stainless steel coating of the building creates a subtle game that interacts with the surrounding environment, sometimes shiny and sometimes matte. The material adapts 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.

A Masterpiece of Light and Color

The interior of the Espace Saint Marc is designed to create a sense of lightness rather than color. A combination of golden and warm tones highlight the natural light of the whole space, providing a welcoming ambiance for all visitors. From the interior, the windows frame the contours of the landscape, allowing guests to enjoy the breathtaking view while experiencing the creative and innovative design of the space.

In conclusion, the Espace Saint Marc is a must-visit destination for anyone looking for a unique and spectacular venue for their next event. With its spacious main hall, versatile annexed areas, interactive design, and welcoming ambiance, the Espace Saint Marc is sure to impress visitors and create unforgettable memories.
