Location: Åreskut, Sweden
The Arctic log of Kontio was selected as building material for a luxury villa in Åreskut, Sweden. Log’s wellbeing-enhancing qualities and calming effects on the body and mind are an important part of the villa, and it offers the international stars a perfect place to rest and spend relaxed leisure time in.
A Norwegian interior designer created a dark interior to accompany the Finnish architecture. The wooden surfaces were treated with a translucent finish and the fireplace was covered with local stone. Natural materials are counterweighted by a touch of different metals, and the living room crown has large glass luminaires.
The villa, which is linked to a luxury hotel, can be rented for a large group of people, as it can accommodate up to 30 people.
This unique combination is born out of elegant solid wood architecture and the ambience of a luxury ski resort. Kontio's Arctic Pine combined with other genuine materials creates a timeless, elegant and individual solution, impossible to recreate using any other building materials. The Copperhill Villa is an excellent example of a successful collaboration between the architect and the customer.
The atmosphere of a mountain manor is born from dark colors and natural materials.
