Neue Monte Rosa Hut
ETH Zurich and the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) present “hut of the future”.
After six years on the drawing board – two of which as a student project design – and a construction phase spanning two summers, the New Monte Rosa Hut above Zermatt finally opened for business in Sep 2009. Nicknamed “Mountain Crystal”, the innovative building generates over 90 percent of its energy itself.

It is scheduled to start receiving guests normally in March 2010 and will continue to serve ETH Zurich as a research object in power and building service engineering. The New Monte Rosa Hut – 2,883 meters above sea level – is currently the most complex wooden construction in Switzerland.

It is covered in a shimmering silver aluminum shell and with a photovoltaic system integrated in the southern facade. This generates its own power and is expected to be at least 90 percent energy self-sufficient.

The last apartments in the SSA Architekten-designed Weltpostpark development are now occupied. The striking six-storey residential buildings have an urban feel about them, while the park-like surroundings and the varied clinker brick facades create a homely atmosphere.

The timber cladding of the new guest rooms, spa and pool area plays a game of shadows and creates a material landscape embedded in the green gardens while the uniting of the old hotel buildings with the new elements is a synthesis of architectural language with simplicity in materials to ensure that the senses are not overwhelmed.
