The building finds its place between slow growing birch trees, brooks and rocks. A location that emphasises the buildings relation to the nature, summer and winter. From this site you have a wide view over well-known mountains in Sweden. You see no other buildings from the site.

We wanted a building that harmonise with the landscapes character both in, shape design and material. On a distance obvious visible with an inviting entrance area to the south. that it will work a sunny day as well in a vowing winter day around on of the fireplaces inside. The food and drink is based on local specialities.

The façade material is given by the surrounding nature, birch logs stands like a huge protecting screen towards the Nordic icy winds. We used the same material for the restaurant both in exterior as well as the interior.

The round shape is natural in the in exposed situation. And it lets the snow stay on the façade. It lets the cold winds pass and it offers maximal view contact from the inside It open its embrace forming a protected outdoors space where you can sit in the sun towards the white mountains.

In one way it is a mini society with its own mountain water and an own mini sewage treatment works. It could as well have its own windmill in the future.
