The site is located in Meransen / South Tyrol in an idyllic enclave of spruce wood and great views of the Dolomites. The area is accessed by a simple path that leads as a hiking trail to the alpine destinations on the local mountain called “Gitschberg”. The winter ski slope is not far from the grounds and can be reached on foot. Also, a creek passes the site, which invites for Cooling in the summertime and in the winter after the sauna session for a cold shower. In this sense, the user is closely connected with the surrounding nature and enjoys its countless advantages. The desire for individual living arrangements as well as the local building culture are the determining factors for the architectural design concept for the Obomila Waldchalets in Meransen. Architect Andreas Gruber of architektgruber.com in Schabs/ South Tyrol has designed a building structure with three units for a touristic concept. The structure is tailored to the needs of the guest and invites you to feel well. The fan shape creates privacy and provides different views of the surrounding nature whose unique qualities are equally led to the building interior. The oversized glass cut-outs frame the respective landscapes and make each residential unit unique.
