The building sections are symmetrically arranged around a central outdoor tennis court. Two identical tennis halls with crystal-shaped roofs border the transverse sides of the court.
A clubhouse with bar, changing rooms and reception area marks the end of the mountain-facing side of the building. In a departure from the design of the original complex the new clubhouse was relocated underground and is accessed from street via an entrance pavilion. The service road for deliveries and access to the multi-level parking is hidden underneath the tennis court for players not to be disturbed by traffic. The project emphasizes ist views into the valley more so than its own appearance. The façades are finished in natural stone in harmony with the original Resort. Initially, the “fifth façade” was designed as glass roof. Ultimately however, at the client’s request, the polygonal roof panels were aluminum clad.
It was important that the shape and materials convey restraint. The diamond-shaped metal roofing elements are particularly noteworthy. The facades are clad in natural stone. The delicate wooden support structure reveals its full grace in the building’s interior. The free-standing roof construction spans over a rectangular area some 22 meters wide by 37 meters long. The halls owe their name to the roof construction whose diamond pattern evoques images of a crystal rock. Glulam supports of 4.2 meters in height form the main roof structure, complemented by concrete wallst o the north, east and west.
