Copperhill Mountain Lodge, a new ski resort hotel located on Mount Förberget in Åre, opened up in December 2008. The site is stunning, perched on the tree line, 730 m above sea level, and the first copper mine in this area was actually called Gustafs!
The lodge has a modern mountain lodge style, created by the American architect Peter Bohlin in cooperation with AIX Arkitekter, Stockholm. Bohlins vision was to create a place that many people could benefit from, constructing a fantastic building to interact with the spectacular surroundings.
Oregon pine ceiling panels have been installed in the foyer, the skishop and the lobby. One of our challenges here was to provide a prefabricated beam-like solution for the ceiling.
Copperhill Mountain Lodge is the first hotel in Norrland to be awarded five stars according to the Swedish Hotel and Restaurant Association’s standard for hotel classification. The hotel has 112 rooms, conference capacity for 600 persons, restaurants, bars and spas and their own connection to Åres ski resort.
