The functional theme of the new Salewa Headquarters- a large warehouse, offices, factory shops, kindergarten, cafeteria and indoor climbing gym - is articulated following the client’s desire to increase the company’s brand image, producing sophisticated mountain climbing apparel. The exceptional location adjacent to the Brennero highway suggested a “landmark” building, in formal dialog with the surrounding steep cliffs. The oxidized zinc envelope and the large north-facing glazed surfaces generate a “mineral” feeling of the whole building on the backdrop of the beautiful and hard landscape.
