Since Spectre, James Bond and the Austrian ski resort Sölden are forever linked. Now, a cinematic installation on the mountain where parts of the last film were shot is destined to amaze visitors.
The building, as seen on the concept sketch above, will be located next to the futuristic ICE Q restaurant which served as the Hoffler Klinik in Spectre. Cable Car Companies Sölden is creating a bespoke new building to house the 007 installation, embedded into the top of the mountain, designed and built by award-winning architect Johann Obermoser. The innovative, dynamic space is inspired by the work of visionary James Bond Production Designer Sir Ken Adam.
“We are looking forward to bringing James Bond back to Sölden in co-operation with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer – by creating a truly unique experience in the heart of Tyrolia. Paired with the many exciting and diverse activities already being offered in our region, this installation will strengthen the position of Sölden as an all-year destination for sport and entertainment”, said cable car CEO Jakob Falkner. After all, it is a special location in a height of over 3.000 meters.
The concept for the installation has been designed and developed by Creative Director and James Bond Art Director Neal Callow (CASINO ROYALE, QUANTUM OF SOLACE, SKYFALL and SPECTRE) together with Optimist Inc. Head of Design Tino Schaedler and his team.
Obermoser arch-omo zt GmbH, one of Austria’s leading architectural firms, has been designing award-winning industrial and residential buildings since 1983. Tyrolian architekt Johann Obermoser and his team have previously designed the Gaislachkoglbahn, the ICE Q Restaurant as well as the impressive Giggijochbahn in Sölden.
The name of the cinematic installation and further details about the visitor experience will be released later this year. As of yet, no date has been set for the opening.
