TreeHugger Tourist Information Office | MoDusArchitects



Text description provided by the architects. Located just outside the historical centre of the South Tyrolean city, adjacent to the Bishop?s Palace of Bressanone, the eye-catching concrete building is the last episode in a series of ?architectural homicides? dating from the 1800s up until the 1970s. TreeHugger takes on the qualities of airiness and levity in alignment with the site?s antecedent structures, which were dedicated to the welcoming of visitors, with their respective features of slender columns, deep loggias, and delicate overhangs.

The project raises its body on tiptoe and frees up the ground level to give it over to the city as a public space. New visual connections are made, not only to the main building of the Bishop?s Palace but also to the ancillary Chinese and Japanese pavilions that mark the corners of the Palace gardens. The exotic, sinuous curves of the corner pavilions are re-interpreted in the building designed by MoDusArchitects which transforms into a new gateway for the city of Bressanone.

The site is characterized by an existing monumental tree that governs the design. TreeHugger twists and turns around the central platanus to form an inseparable connection between nature and edifice. The visual and tactile qualities of the roughhewn walls of the bush-hammered concrete and the scaly bark of the plane-tree mimic one another in their juxtaposition.
