Mountain Hut
Obereggen - first prize
Peter Pichler Architecture, in collaboration with Arch. Pavol Mikolajcak, has won a competition to design a new mountain hut at 2.000m in the Italian Dolomites. The new hut will contain a restaurant and is going to be located next to the cable station Oberholz in Obereggen with direct connection to the ski slope. The cantilevering structure grows out of the hill like a fallen tree with three main branches creating a symbiosis with the landscape. . Each of them is facing towards the three most important surrounding mountains. The structure of the hut is a combination of steel and wood. The exterior facade, including the roof as well as the interior will be entirely made of wood creating a homogenous sculpture with local materials.
