Construction of a public building Exhibition Heidi Walenstadt, SG

A new home for Heidi

The first “Heidi World of Experience” is to be built on more than 700 m2 in Walenstadt, right on the banks of Lake Walen. The Swiss cultural heritage of Heidi, Johanna Spyri and the related topics such as "Heidi – The Myth", "Johanna Spyri – The Creator", "Heidi – the Musical" should be experienced in an attractive, interactive and educational way.  

The one-storey exhibition pavilion includes a café and a small shop in addition to the exhibition space. All exhibition areas are connected to the central “village square”. This offers space for events. The pavilion is made entirely of wood the outer shell is clad with a vertical slat structure. A large image is milled into the wooden facade.
