Project Size:3,875 sq. ft.

Program: The clients desired a warm and inviting vacation house with ski in-ski out access to neighboring slopes. The cabin, located on a steep site high in the mountains, needed to accommodate at least 12 people for large family holidays.

Solution: The architects divided the 3,875-square-foot steel-frame wood-clad house into seven levels to reflect the topography of the site. The exterior walls and roof are clad in larch wood, while the interior ceilings and walls are oak. A large living room separates the master bedroom on the west end from a cluster of guest rooms on the east, which can be closed off from rest of the house by large sliding doors.  A large terrace extends from the living and dining areas to take advantage of mountain views. The house was completed in 2011.
