‘quattro Festkogl Alm’ by Designliga (DE) ‘quattro Festkogl Alm’ by Designliga Munich-based creative agency Designliga transformed Audi’s legendary quattro drive system into a memorable visitor experience at Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, Austria’s ‘diamond of the Alps’ ski resort. The ‘quattro Festkogl Alm’ opened as a partnership between AUDI AG and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl Ski Lift Company (Liftgesellschaft Obergurgl-Hochgurgl). Says Designliga, “The realization of this architectural metamorphosis begins with a visual impetus arising from the geometrical form of the Audi rings on the parapet and extending throughout the terrace to reach its culmination on the facade. This is clad in faceted matte-finish anodized aluminium, gradually shaded by the design’s featured shade of red from the parapet to the facade wall. The glowing colour creates an eye-catching splash against the snow, clearly visible from long distances.”
