In a breathtaking mountain scenery, 2000meters above sea level is the ski lodge wolf with the dimensions of 22 x 16 x 7 meter is situated. Like a peak, the saddle roof stands out and adapts itself to the topography of the surroundings. Chosen as a main material for the building was the sustainable material wood. The façade is cladded with a vertical and horizontal screen made of rough sawn spruce in different widths. Reinforced concrete was used for the fundament and reminds to the old lodges built on a stone base.
During the winter season, you can easily reach the lodge with the ski lift while in summer a hiking trail directly leads to the lodge. At two sides of the building, a porch runs around and provides for about 50 guests a weather protected area. When you enter the lodge you get to the bar with a double floor high. The ceiling of this room reflects the outer shape and opens up to a huge lantern made of dense and open spruce slats.
Directly behind the bar is the bright kitchen where three chefs prepare culinary and regional dishes. Next to the bar two snuggeries are offer burst for 50 other guests. An open fireplace with a concrete surface connects the two rooms and keeps them heated during the winter. The room for the employees is on the second floor and extends to an exclusive loggia.
