The Tschierva hut is located in the Bernina mountain range of the Swiss Alps. The addition made by Hans-Jörg Ruch Architektur is the resutl of an architectural competition. The building is part of a series of huts run by the Swiss Alpine Club for trekking the Bernina massif.
Although the addition’s appearance is wooden, its structure is made with steel. The exterior wood paneling is extended to the interior, creating an inviting and warm atmosphere.
