A Minimalist Ski Resort in Sweden
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Leave it to the Swedes to devise a minimal ski retreat, clinging to the steep Osthang cliff and overlooking dramatic mountain peaks. Daniel Fagerberg Arkitekter designed a compound of four buildings, divided in three apartments, based on an iconographic interpretation of the traditional loft shed. The buildings are constructed of cross-laminated timber with fir paneling—a modern version of old timber houses. Photos by Peder Sundstrom via ArchDaily.
