The curved roofs of the designed buildings have been derived from the surrounding mountain scape and are covered with a meadow landscape.
The sculpture of the roofs or slopes has been inspired by the movement of the massif of the surrounding mountains, which have over centuries led to the formation of the Alps. The facade takes the topic even further.
The arrangement of different coloured slate on the buildings skin recreates the formation of the rock strata of the Alps. Varying thicknesses and colours ease the heaviness of the material.
