Studio Seilern reveals plans for restaurant on 2km-high Swiss peak

  • Comment

London’s Studio Seilern Architects has revealed plans to build this 900m² restaurant 2,362m above sea level on a mountain in Andermatt, Switzerland

The ‘robust landmark’ building will sit at the meeting point of three cable car lines on the Nätschen in an area near the top of the mountain known as Gütsch.

According to the practice the restaurant will attract both skiers and dinner guests from the valley-based hotels and has been designed as a contemporary ‘hameau’, or hamlet, taking inspiration from a carved stone sculpture of Horta de Ebro by Manolo Valdez.

Studio Seilern is working with Altdorf-based outfit Siebzehn 13 on the project, which will feature a concrete walled structure, clad in local stone with a timber roof. 

A spokesman said: ‘Made out of local stone and reflecting the silhouette of vernacular Swiss villages, Restaurant Gütsch will cater both for the aesthetic and the climatic challenges of a unique site.

‘The wide openings will offer panoramic views over the valley of Andermatt, while the timber-lined interior walls offer cosy comfort.’

The project is set to complete in 2019.
