The main building features a reception area, and adjacent to the reception is a wood shingled hut, that’s home to the resort’s restaurant.

The restaurant opens up to a large room with high ceilings, a mezzanine level, and large sloped windows that provide a view of the outdoors and an abundance of natural light.

Back outside, and the resort is made of a group of contemporary and distinctive wooden cabins, where comfort, generosity of space, and compelling views towards the surrounding forest and sky are central to the design.

Inside the cabins, a wall of windows shows off surrounding area, while inside, there’s an open plan living room and dining area.

A black spiral staircase leads up to the lofted bedroom, which also has a glass ceiling above the bed, making it easy to stargaze at night. All of the glass surfaces are heated to allow views even in snowy conditions.
