See You Restaurant

Das Restaurant „See You“  in Obergurgl ist ein Dorfgasthaus direkt an der Hangkante der Gurglerstraße gelegen und bietet dadurch von Gastraum und Terrasse aus einen uneingeschränkten Blick auf die Berghänge der gegenüberliegenden Talseite.

Das Restaurant gliedert sich in unterschiedliche Bereiche: die Bar mit Loungezone, den durch Bogenkonstruktionen und Vorhangwände zonierten Gastraum, die Stube mit einem großen massiven Stammtisch und die luftige Balkonterrasse.

Die bewusst reduzierte Materialwahl beschränkt sich auf Sichtbetonbögen, massives Eichenholz für Möbel, Boden- und Wandbeläge, den Boden aus gebrochenen Granitsteinen, Black-Inox und Kupfer für den Barbereich, sowie Lodenstoffe für Vorhänge und schalldämmende Deckenverkleidungen.

English version

Obergurgl is a village of 420 inhabitants located in Ötztal, a valley in the heart of the Austrian Alps within the region Tyrol. With its 1.930 m, is this the highest parish in Austria. A stable tourism flow throughout the whole year keeps this remote site in touch with the rest of the world, shaping and revitalising the area.

obermoser + partner architekten have been asked from the client to develop residential units for employees of the tourism branch. A restaurant, few shops and private apartments should complete the ensemble. The location however, a six-storey-steep slope stretching between two streets leading to the town centre, has been a real challenge for the design concept.

We chose to empower the given site-limitations by working on the cross section: we straightened the slope into a wall, we brought all living functions to the west-front and we gave to the interstitial void a distribution and social function.
On the floor, directly accessible from the upper street, we placed the See You restaurant, with the most spectacular view over the mountains on the opposite westside.

For the See You interiors, we deliberately staged the structural elements distinctive features, arches of exposed reinforced concrete unfolding in different directions, then recollecting in bundles. The bar, a lounge area and a sequel of dining spaces can be used as one open space or be separated in smaller partitions.

The selection of materials for the interiors, deliberately minimalist, recalls the raw, untreated elements used for generations in the alpine region:
– massive oak wood for the floors, wall coverings and furniture
– local granite stone as floor covering of hallway and connecting spaces
– black-inox and copper for the bar cladding
– curtainwalls of loden fabric as space-partitioners
Only colour-accent is the deep blue of the sound absorbing ceilings and background-walls, at both ends of the restaurant.
