Gaislachkogl Cable Automobile Center Station Extension / obermoser + associate architekten
Textual content description offered by the architects. Within the Ötztal Valley, among the many Tyrolean alps, mountain tourism has seen in the previous couple of many years a steady-increase. Keen to maintain and additional promote an all-year-round sustainable mannequin, the Bergbahnen Sölden requested obermoser + associate architekten to increase the Gaislachkogl cable automobile center station with two new eating places.
Design thought. Keen to offer a direct connection between the prevailing cable automobile station and the eating places have been a design precedence from the beginning. Afunctional distribution on two ranges is supposed to manage customer flows and generate spacious, panoramic terraces. The proposal relates with a proper continuity to the prevailing cable-car station, constructed by our workplace in 2010, whereas the extension makes use of a distinct materialization to underline the brand new intervention.
The present basement construction in bolstered concrete has been prolonged and renovated, for the extension we proposed a massive-wood construction in prefab parts. This acutely aware selection enabled us to shorten development occasions, make use of regional supplies, and produce an announcement of environmental care.
Interiors. Wooden has been a helpful design factor for the interiors as nicely. The restaurant on the higher flooring hosts as much as 100 visitors and shows a present kitchen and a broad roof terrace with spectacular south/east views over the Stubai and Ötztal Alps. The bottom flooring shows a self-service restaurant with a beneficiant eating space for about 300 visitors, flooded with mild by panoramic, full-glazed fronts emphasizing spectacular alpine views.
The eating space is designed as an open area, with self-service islands of various thematic areas and numerous colours, offering for free-flow consumption. Internal areas have been designed to flexibly adapt to completely different functions: various room-size-partitions, ribbed picket ceilings, and pure picket tones outline the ambiance whereas sliding partitions allow fast spatial rearrangements.
Within the bistro space, a distinguished picket binder parallel to the window entrance acts as a visible room partitioner, the transition being emphasised by a materialization in darkish tones. On the skin, a spacious panoramic terrace overlooks the ski slopes.
Three completely different lighting ideas have been designed for the completely different case eventualities; Lattice beams with studio lights for the show-kitchen islands, custom-designed hanging lamps for the bistro space, and refined, and invisible mild sources for the eating space.
