Samedan – St. Moritz, 1st Prize

Engadin Airport near Samedan– St. Moritz, Switzerland, held a competition for a new airport building including a large restaurant, a hotel, facilities for events, and hangars for aircrafts, helicopters and gliders. Overall a total of 28’000 sqm had to be planned including parking space.

The winning project proposes a simple, 420-meter long building that combines multiple functions into a single shape, which also defines a clear edge to the airfield. A three-story lobby adjoining the central hangar forms a spacious, light-filled gate that mediates between the airfield and the valley. Through its function as a link between these main areas, it facilitates a variety of uses.

A wood-chip heating system and warm-water collector with a yearly reservoir allow the building to be heated fully through renewable sources of energy.
