Himmelchalet Alpencamping Nenzing

As an addition to an existing five – star campsite, ten tiny houses were built in the first construction phase. The building site is unique: embedded in a forest clearing, a 40 meter high hill rises with fantastic views of the surrounding mountain landscape. The tiny houses are stacked up the slope next to and on top of each other, like in a kind of beehive. More than 30 trees and 800 bushes were planted to allow an uncontrolled dense greening of the complex. The Tiny Houses were realized with local craftsmen and prefabricated in the hall of the room and assembled on the construction site using a mobile crane. Most of the wood came from the local farming community. On the one hand, the parabolic shape of the cross – section enabled an ideal dissipation of the static forces and, at the same time, an optimal use of space inside. The combination of a cave – like wooden vault and the extreme panoramic position gives guests a unique and unmistakable sense of space.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The tiny houses, stacked next to and on top of each other, form a classic ensemble in the middle of the mountains, built with wood from the valley and processed with high quality by local craftsmen. Holiday season floating 10 meters above the ground…
