Angled Canadian Chalet Updates Traditional Lodge Design


Looks like we officially have an architecture crush, as we featured a Bohlin Cywinski Jackson-designed Park City pool a few days ago and we're tickled pink by this 3,500-square-foot home from the same firm. Located in Kicking Horse, British Columbia, a whopping 14 people can sleep beneath the chalet's unique, sloping roofline, and inside there's a mixture of sleek concrete, mahogany, and steel scattered throughout. Exposed wood, a modern fireplace, and an under-the-stairs ski mud room (brilliant!) all make this a functional ski chalet, and the floor to ceiling windows with forest-views certainly don't hurt. Bunk beds upstairs prove that the architect had the traditional ski lodge design in mind, but the whole concept feels like a fresh take on what a mountain abode can be. It's certainly working better than this home, don't you think?
