The client envisaged a building that would blend into the mountain terrain, but with a distinct signature. The solution was to construct a building with extensive use of different types of timber in combination with pre-fabricated concrete modules.
The primary structure is solid timber and the entire exterior is cladded in naturally varying wood paneling. This gives the restaurant a tactile quality as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
Food with a view
The building incorporates, in addition to the restaurant, a shop, booking office and ski rental, creating a hub and a meeting place in the alpine village. The dining room looks out onto the majestic Gaustatoppen, which creates a stunning backdrop that adds value to the dining experience.
