The newly erected mountain station at 2,262 meters above sea level takes in the unique nature of the Chäserrugg and gives visitors the opportunity to experience impressive experiences on the summit. The world-famous architects Herzog & de Meuron designed a unique mountain lodge: They integrated traditional elements of local architecture, combined functionality and aesthetics in a clever way without falling into the stereotype of the "Alpenchics".
You get a view thanks to the large-sized insulating glass from Glas Trösch, that are able to withstand even extreme weather conditions. The planners used the extra-white EUROWHITE as the basic glass: thanks to its extremely high light transmission it offers a very good color rendering index and thus a high degree of transparency. While a low level of reflection allows unobstructed views from the inside of the building, the 14% external reflection benefits bird protection: birds recognize the glass early as an obstacle thus minimizing the risk of an impact.
