Schatzalp Tower , Davos

Once a haven for tuberculosis patients
, the Schatzalp thus became a popular destination for sports holidays. Mountain railways were constructed up to the Strela Pass, from which skiers were able to reach the region of the Parsenn and even tour as far as Klosters.

Today, another half century later, the building, now 100 years old, can no longer meet the requirements of contemporary, cost-effective hotel accommodation.

We propose erecting a tower on the site of today's mountain terminus.

It will stand in a spot that is already occupied by buildings. The slope above the hotel will remain unchanged: a large playing field with bobsled and skiing slopes.
