This is a chair cable lift of which 3 stations were designed: in the valley, in middle and on the top. They all match their design. The roof of the first station has multiple angles and spans from the ground up, over the large garage and the entrance and exit of the cable lift. Its shape integrates the station into its environments – in winter it is completely covered in snow; in summer overgrown by grass – as if the lift is part of the mountain. The chameleon-like character also visually reduces the prominent size of the base station. The striking angular entrance facade has a translucent polycarbonate sheeting. All stations are built with lightweight materials such as plastics, corrugated metal sheeting and wood, because of limited access to the area. The steel-frame construction was brought up to the site by helicopter. The interior is painted in Neon-red and -green. These shrill colors have enough power in clear sunlight, match the loud world of winter sports.
