Mountain restaurant in Ramundberget
Design: Murman arkitekter
This is a rather unique place to build at restaurant in.
It is a calm site between two of the lifts in Ramundberget ski resort. It lies on a small hill where the tree line meets the mountain. From there you have easy access to the ski slopes.
We have chosen the site carefully and put the building between slow growing birch trees, brooks and rocks, easy reachable but away from the lifts. This location emphasises the buildings relation to the nature and that could work summer and winter. From this site you have a wide view over well-known mountains in Sweden as Helags and Skars. You see no other buildings from the site.
Our aim has been to design a building that harmonise with the landscapes character both in, shape design and material. On a distance obvious visible and an inviting entrance area. The ambition has also been to offer the visitor a unique welcoming atmosphere an experience with the magnificent view over the peaks around the building. Towards the open sunny side to the south and vest you have the bare mountain region.
We hope that the interior is both intimate and spacious. And that it will work a sunny day as well in a vowing winter day around on of the fireplaces.
The Facade material is given by the surrounding nature, birch logs stands like a huge protecting screen towards the Nordic icy winds
The round shape is natural in the in exposed situation. And it lets the snow stay on the façade. It lets the cold winds pass and it offers maximal view contact from the inside It open its embrace forming a protected outdoors space where you can sit in the sun towards the white mountains.
In one way it is a mini society with its own mountain water and an own mini sewage treatment works. It could as well have its own wind mill in the future. The Sami people that was the first people who lived in this area lived in much smaller tent like building, a round Lavo. Built by birch. We used the same material for the restaurant both in exterior as well as the interior.
