The Granatalm mountain pasture
at the Penkenjoch
AT 2,095 METRES ABOVE SEA LEVEL
is built mostly of wood. Its design consists
of two separate wings, in order to handle the different capacity requirements
in winter and summer.
From the front, the structure appears to be a single-storeyed building with a large sun deck. If you approach it from the other side, it reveals itself to be a multi-storeyed lodge – thanks to its unique hillside location.
Accentuated with different materials,
the facade outlines individual functional
The kitchen and surrounding area, for example, offers a facade cladding made from larch wood. This way, it was possible to install large windows without compromising the lodge’s homogeneous look.
We chose regional wood types for the building to give the Granatalm a more comfortable and cosy atmosphere, despite its huge dimensions.
