The CopperHill, design modern lodge designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is located in Are, Sweden. The lodge stretches parallel to the site’s natural topography, preserving the tree line; its plan is layered with the terrain to maximize both daylight exposure and views of the extraordinary landscape.
Each suite was prefabricated offsite and lifted into the building’s heavy timber frame. Projected windows and balconies angle outward in staccato patterns across the long wood clad facades, finished in Falu Rödfärg Black, a traditional finish with origins in the copper mines of Sweden. Two slim wings flank the south facing heart of the building and their projected thin edges lighten the mass of the building which rests upon a plinth of regional Offerdal slate.
