viamala raststätte thusis

I was driving from Chur down to Milan last week and came upon this rest station nestled in the Swiss Alps. The contextual architectural roof against the backdrop of the white and green mountains creates a striking presence as you pull off the highway to park. The interior is clad with natural and raw wood timbers and continues the notion of undulating hills inside of the space. In addition to a shop with local artisan meats and cheeses – there is a cafe and dining area and a convenience store.
