Peter Pichler is perhaps best known for his sustainable treehouses in the forest of the Italian Dolomites and their signature sharply pitched roofs. The project was conceived as a “slowed down” form of tourism where the integration of architecture within nature plays a primary role. The young Milan-based architect has many prestigious projects under his belt, having worked under big names such as Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas, not to mention the bold projects he’s taken on under his own firm, Peter Pichler Architecture, including our new member property Schgaguler Hotel.
Interested in the analysis and research of vernacular architecture, materials, and elements that combined with technology can express a contemporary interpretation of the past.
Nominated as the young Italian talent by the National Chamber of Architects in Italy and was a finalist at the Gold Medal of Architecture Price of the Triennale di Milano.
The future of architecture is mass customization, which you already see in fashion and design, thanks to three-dimensional technology.

A tree house hotel project in the U.S., a hotel and a villa in Italy, and residential projects in Abu Dhabi and Germany.
I think the project we are currently working in the U.S. is very innovative in terms of sustainability and design concept in general.
