The two constructions will replace the old “Naif” station at the bottom and the “Piffinger Köpli” station at the top of Ivigna cableway in Merano, adapting the line to offer users the greatest possible comfort and fit into the landscape of the architectural structures enhancing the site?s potential.
What the two projects share is that they consist of two separate volumes which intersect even while remaining clearly distinct in form, materials and function. The volume containing the technical core of the cable car is immediately recognisable with its stretched sheet metal covering painted bright red, a colour evoking the dynamism of transport.
