MODERN DESIGN BLENDED WITH MOUNTAIN MATERIALS
Consistent with the Olson Kundig ideology, the expansion of the Goldener Hirsch features clean, modern, contemporary lines softened by the use of native mountain materials appropriate to an alpine setting. Concrete, steel and expansive windows define the buildings linear structure, while reclaimed wood adds intrinsic character and promotes the sensation of backstory.
OUTDOOR SPACES THAT PROMOTE SOCIAL GATHERINGS
Adjacent to the new hotel front entrance is a courtyard patio connecting the lobby and library lounge to the conference center. This lively space will offer event guests an outdoor location to relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air and provides for a festive ambience unique to an alpine village.
