Reflecting the silhouette of vernacular Swiss villages, the Gütsch complex is designed as a contemporary “hameau”, a Swiss hamlet, where a collection of smaller buildings creates a harmonious whole. 

Inspired by the carved stone sculpture ‘Horta de Ebro’ (2003) by Manolo Valdez and the atmosphere and awesomeness captured in Caspar David Friedrich’s painting ‘Wanderer above the sea of fog’ (1818), Studio Seilern set out to create a landmark that is as robust as the dramatic setting of the landscape.
