Located next to the Oberholz cable station in Obereggen, a ski resort in the Italian Dolomites range, this restaurant cantilevers out of the slope like a fallen tree with three main branches, each covered with a pitched roof. The design by Peter Pichler Architecture in Milan and Pavol Mikolajcak Architekt in Bolzano frames views of the surroundings with glass facades. The building’s main volumen is incrusted into the mountain and juts out with a complex stucture made of a combination of spruce, larch, and oak wood. The dark colors of the exterior strike a contrast with the light tones of the interior, where exposed ribs adapt to the curvilinear forms.
