The architects have responded well to the idyllic mountain context, breaking up the luxury boutique hotel into a series of carefully sculpted pavilions. Slatted vertical cedar timber covers much of the outsides of the buildings, with the slats spaced out where they are positioned over windows.

The project possesses good sustainability credentials for a luxury hotel. It uses locally sourced timber and other materials, and has low U-values and careful placement opening windows to minimise heat gain and thus cut down on the air-conditioning load.
