The central living space of this 70's ski house is currently dominated by a large sculptural element containing the fireplace and kitchen. Although some may argue for its aesthetic appeal, functionally it separates the room into smaller disconnected spaces making it difficult to socialize in larger groups. Its placement and configuration also direct the focus inward away from views of the mountain just outside.
Our challenge was to purpose an alternate configuration that better facilitates the needs of a large multigenerational family looking to gathering together after a long day on the slopes.
Below is a photo and rendering of the existing space, our proposed transformation, and some bathroom tune-ups including the design of the vanities.
