At an altitude of 3,048 meters, the iceQ is the latest attraction in Austria’s Ötztal. With its four fully-glazed, cube-shaped structures, the mountain restaurant takes on the appearance of four stacked ice cubes that blend perfectly into the snow and ice of the Alpine environment, in particular in winter when the ice crystals forming on the glass turn the building into a frost-clad ice sculpture. The glass façade, which measures some 1,200 square meters was realized using RAICO’s THERM+ A-I aluminum curtain wall system.
