«Skigaarden is perched on an existing ledge amidst the beautiful mountain slopes of Hemsedal. The current use of
the ski resort, aswell as the surrounding terrain have set the terms for the development project. The collection of
small and large buildings are developed with the aim of falling naturally into the terrain. The landscape that encases
Skigaarden contributes to.
The buildings, outdoor spaces and a car free environment together create intimate, sunny, safe and welcoming areas.
The outdoor area is naturally landscaped between the buildings, as well as a designed square for ski in & out,
strategically faced with an opening in southwesterly direction for optimal sun. This square is part of the “main street”
between eateries and activity spaces in surrounding buildings. The square is designed to be a meeting place, as well
as designed with the best possible view.»
