positioned in the middle of the UNESCO herbal heritage space of the sesto dolomites, ‘bistro bergsteiger’ through plasma studio is built-in easily into its herbal and constructed context. the brink of an embarkment, settled alongside a well known mountaineering path, served to embed the brand new quantity and to mix it with the native surroundings. the view from the doorway to the valley at the mountain panorama that closes the world to the south isn’t diminished through the location of the brand new construction, simply because it does no longer visually intervene with the present safe development.all photographs courtesy of florian jaenicke
plasma studio reduces the size of the development up to imaginable and adapts its geometries to the present presences. on one aspect, the construction faces the mountain known as ‘cima 12’ in opposition to the south, whilst at the different aspect it dialogues with the encircling constructions. within the plan, the brand new set up aligns with the indexed development, and on the similar time, the diminished heights attached its southern elevation with the total profile of the shaped components. the end result takes form as an structure this is ‘suitable’ to the context, which nonetheless develops with its personal persona.
the double-pitched roof floor is handled with in depth inexperienced and it rises in opposition to the principle view. full-height home windows permit the attention to wander over the mountain panorama, whilst the inner is designed to be able to be offering an undisturbed view to as many guests as imaginable. moreover, the principle room consists of various spaces, together with the counter, the circulate area, and the 2 eating spaces, outlined to be able to support the sense of intimacy and quietness permitting a large view because of the variation of peak between the flooring. in the meantime, the glass façade that separates the inner area from the outside terrace opens if wanted and the out of doors area may also be prolonged inwards.
in the case of materiality, the development attracts affect from the within reach indexed construction. spray plaster lined the outside and inside, and larch wooden cladding designed as a modern reinterpretation of the previous ornamental motif. uncovered screed and plaster ready with native stone and sand, the usage of dolomite stone and native larch wooden for the furniture, support the merging of the brand new development with its context.
the homeowners of the bistro are the descendants of climbing pioneers michl and sepp innerkofler and the documentation in their first ascent is a part of the inner design. discussion with the context and moderation within the intervention resolve a venture this is totally outlined in its ‘appropriateness’.
