Every architectural project has its own history, its unforeseen twists and turns, its changes in programme or paradigm, as well as its own minor miracles. The TC10 is no exception, on the back of the architects' proposal, this cable car station actually became a comfortable lounge space to meet the new needs of skiers and take full advantage of this truly exceptional site. Halfway between a work of art and a chill out zone, this atypical project was based on the form and feel of a nest. However, due to the mountain climate the form had to be made more compact. In this sweeping mountain setting, it has kept its original silhouette with its gabled facades and a spectacular overhang, conveying the notion of a fragile, slightly unbalanced installation perched on the mountainside.
