A cluster of gabled alpine structures complements existing base buildings and gives a nod to historic mining camps in the area, while a relaxed, welcoming mountain plaza engages the local community and visitors alike. Cabin-style residential townhomes are located along One Ski Hill Road, and a seven-floor landmark hotel, commercial amenities, dining experiences, and gathering places are oriented toward the ski mountain.
Aligned with the surroundings, the R+B team established a non-reflective color palette of warm tans and grays, paired with natural materials such as granites, bronzed metals, and rich-toned woods. Exterior detailing includes steeply pitched cabin roof forms and accent elements characteristic of the mountains. The internal wood façade of the plaza is punctuated with shade and shadow through a variety of decks, balconies and expressed windows. Vertical wood-slat screen walls playfully undulate toward upper floors to create a unique, vertical quilt-like pattern representative of a mountain range. Design and construction will strive to employ the latest recommended green building practices.
