Floor surfaces shoot out of the envelope into space, to create shade and ample space for outdoor entertainment. The slab edges taper gently and make the hovering slabs appear paper-thin. The rectilinear language of the project discretely contrasts with nature and the organic surroundings, while retaining the well-integrated character of mountain shelters.
