Kicker Cabin

Utah, Amer­ica

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - DISCOVER -

When Apollo De­sign Stu­dio was com­mis­sioned by a snow­boarder to cre­ate a one-of-a-kind moun­tain re­treat, they re­sponded by pre­sent­ing a mod­ern ski cabin an­chored to the rugged gran­ite of Utah’s Wasatch Moun­tains. Kicker Cabin – named af­ter a snow­board­ing jump – fea­tures an elon­gated de­sign rem­i­nis­cent of his­toric min­ing struc­tures of the late 1800s. Its L-shaped lay­out spans 140m2 and in­cludes a glass-and-steel box that projects 2 470m above the val­ley, hous­ing a liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen area with un­ri­valled views of the land­scape. This main part of the cabin is an­chored by a small square struc­ture tucked into the hill­side on its right, and it is here that the bed­room and bath­room are lo­cated. A steel-and-tim­ber roof is the fin­ish­ing touch, with a flat de­sign that not only holds snow and pre­vents the dan­gers of an avalanche, but also gives the ar­chi­tec­ture an an­gu­lar, fu­tur­is­tic feel that ref­er­ences the work of fa­mous Ital­ian ar­chi­tect An­to­nio Sant’Elia. apollo-de­sign­stu­
