At this exposed location, the design develops from the confrontation with the avalanche protection requirements and a modern, efficient chalet structure. The area of the side wall grows sculpturally in its stone structure out of the mountainside and forms the physical avalanche protection. The folded roof transfers the movement of the mountain into the chalet and gives it an unmistakeable, concise identity. In the front part, the roof area leads seamlessly into the wooden construction. Both elements encircle the chalet corpus made of prefabricated wooden elements.
The building volume of the chalet on the valley side extends along the existing plinth of the former hut and can be clearly seen from a distance by approaching climbers despite the shape. Three large panorama windows on the ground floor offer a view down into the valley and across to the surrounding mountains.mehr
