The interior of the restaurant is completely clad in wood and stone and attempts to adapt to the stereotype of mountain huts but interpreted in a modern and contemporary way. The CLT superstructure is covered with glass panels of up to 6 metres high, offering spectacular views of the ski slopes and mountain ranges

The entire interior space is filled with suspended lamps made of compressed felt which convey the idea of a swarm of birds flying through the building. These in combination with perforated wooden ceiling panels create a fantastic acoustic experience throughout the restaurant
