The mobile pavilion
St. Moritz Altitude Training and Competition Centre was tailor-made for this location and use. “In order to improve places, we need to engage sensitively with our surroundings and require a specific architecture.” This is the philosophy of the architect Georg Krähenbühl, which is reflected in the award-winning construction project.
The clad warehouse
In addition to the functionality of the HTWZ, its architectural quality is central. The horizontal and vertical staggering of the volume makes the building more complex and, at the same time, makes the various uses inside clear. The appearance of the purely functional building is refined by cladding with wood shingles made of Engadine larch. Furthermore, thanks to the homegrown cladding, it blends authentically into the surroundings.

If the surroundings already are densely populated, there always remains the activation of roof areas.
Creates liveliness and communication. Not many parking garages can do that.
