The pure yet complex patterns combined with the influence of Australian timber, alpine huts and the alpine resorts of Europe and the United States provided the basis for the resulting architecture form.
The concave and convex window penetrations of the north facade emphasise the dynamic quality of the building both in plan and elevation, manipulating ones perspective as the lodge is observed from east to west. In contrast, the subtlety of the worn timber materials is calming and suggests an affinity with local building typologies.
Comprised of boutique accommodation, day and wellness spa and a gourmet produce store with cafe, Huski is accessible throughout the summer and winter months and provides an alternate recreational holiday to the standard alpine resort.
