Replacing the 1930s wooden skating-rink building by Rudolf Gabarel destroyed by a fire in 1991, the modern sports centre, situated in the centre of Davos, is sporting ground, grandstand, accommodation, offices, surgery and restaurant – all in one. It combines professional training and competition conditions and accommodation; the Time-Out. Restaurant and support are situated on the ground floor, with sport's facilities above and apartments on the top. Their use is expressed on the exterior: combined bare concrete and two layers of wood cladding, the inner painted yellow and the outer untreated. The interior echoes the exterior: the use of yellows, greens, blues, oranges and greens (designed together with artist Adrian Schiess), contrasted against both exposed concrete and natural wood furniture. From the big sun terrace of the restaurant you have a wonderful view onto the natural ice rink. Gigon & Guyer also built the Kirchner Museum and wooden Maintenance building just next-door.
