Top mountain cross point is a project was designed by Mike Brötz that host the road toll station, restaurant and a Vintage Motorcycle Museum under a giant roof.
Project descriptions: Thanks to the gently curved, organic lining the building almost seems to merge with its surroundings – it was much better than using cubistic architectural elements. The choice of materials was essential, strongly focusing on natural designs, although we also used ferroconcrete. But wood still remains the main construction element from a visual point of view. Stylistically, I tried to combine timeless modern architecture and traditional shapes of typical Alpine houses. Therefore the Restaurant‘s front view has a saddleback roof that gently levels off in a huge curve towards the mountain gondola hall and the western part of the building which hosts the Road Toll Station on the ground floor and the Motorcycle Museum on the upper floor. The heart-warming interior design is characterized by wooden surfaces and steel shells combined with natural stone. Slightly influenced by industrial design, the building is strongly connected to technical elements as shown in the museum and the mountain gondola station.
One of the biggest challenges in planning this project was the harmonious connection between the different parts of the building. Under one giant roof you will find the road toll station of Timmelsjoch High Alpine Panorama Road, the base station of Kirchenkarbahn mountain gondola (state-of-the-art 10-person cabins), the Restaurant accommodating more than 200 persons including also a spacious sun terrace and a top-class Vintage Motorcycle Museum covering some 2000 m². Visitors are warmly invited to enjoy a great skiing day on the area‘s superb slopes, followed by a fabulous rest stop at the motorbike museum where countless classic gems are on display. Afterwards, mouth-watering delights await you at the restaurant before you leave the ski region. Also in the summer months you shouldn‘t miss a panoramic ride on the popular Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road leading past the marvelous "Top Mountain Cross Point" that offers uninterrupted outlooks and insights
