Landscaping of la Croix de Chamrousse summit
The summit of La Croix is currently made up of the former arrival station of the former cable-car, comprising a mountain restaurant, the disused Météo France site and a TDF infrastructure.
The site’s landscaping is both a global environmental step and a will to enhance the site’s tourism (for families, walkers, skiers…)
First, the site will retrieve its natural aspect, the unnecessary elements, such as the remnants of former works, will be removed.
The cable-car’s arrival station and the restaurant should be demolished in Spring soon. With a totally new architecture in a mountain landscape, the new restaurant will be designed to fit into the natural profile of the dome. The north part of the building will be buried and the south and west parts glazed. It will be accessible to disabled people.
A special attention will be given to the site’s landscaping with a quality nature atmosphere.
The ski area will be reshaped for the access to the Olympique Hommes slope.
Innovating solutions concerning water and cleaning up are also thought about, as well as a way to decrease the visual impact of the TDF net especially.
