Designed by Gion A. Caminada, the building is located in the forest and adjoins a glade to the west, which opens onto the valley. A slightly ascending path leads over a pasture and along the edge of the forest to the hut. It is located in an area known as “Plong Vaschnaus”, Switzerland, near the rhine confluence. In the immediate vicinity contradictory conditions meet. The grassland below the hut is crossed by high-voltage pylons and dominated by the noise of the neighboring gravel. Above the hut is dense forest, which merges into mountainous terrain.
