A Minimalist Ski Resort in Sweden

December 10, 2012

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.
