Studio Monte Rosa [swiss ingenuity]

Posted in doozersticks by nerdlette on 27 June 2008

Studio Monte Rosa is a special mountain hut, which has been planned for the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) by the Department of Architecture. In the middle of a natural reserve with extreme alpine conditions, yet energeticaly to 90% self-contained and self-sufficient.

In splendid isolation, on the edge of a glacier in pristine wilderness, the hut will be able to host 125 guests in the restaurant and hotel with very little environmental impact. The four floors will be realised in a wooden pre-fabricated structure. The realisation of bio-gas generation for human waste recycling is also being considered.

Also its really spectacularly beautiful
