At last it’s snowing! Now is the perfect time to travel to the alpine regions and enjoy some skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing. Or perhaps just enjoy a nice glass of red by an open fire. In this blog we bring you some alpine inspiration, taking in the lovely textures and finishes used in modern alpine architecture. In particular, we take a close look Fjall Lodge at Falls Creek in the picturesque Victorian ski fields.
Even before you step inside, it’s clear that Fjall (pronounced “fe-yall”, Swedish for mountain) is built using some of the finest hard finishes available. The luxurious alpine retreat, designed by Salter Architects and interior design firm Hecker Phelan & Guthrie, features just six fully self contained 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments. The views are dramatic and absolutely spectacular.
The beautiful Nordic building brings a strong sense of nature into the interiors from the smoked and limed oak timber floors and wall paneling, and custom-designed oak timber joinery to the Calacutta marble, heated balconies and cozy window banquettes.
A full entertainers kitchen is featured in each apartment at Fjalls. The bench tops are Calcutta marble, complemented with contemporary cabinetry and high quality stainless steel Smeg appliances. The classic white subway tiles are the perfect compliment to the rest of the modern space.
The casual eating area is flanked by gorgeous european oak floor boards and wall panelling to create a warm and organically inviting space, whilst the modern Eames chairs punctuate to space with a crispness that emulates the whiteness of the snow outside.
Bluestone was used liberally in the bathrooms, along with lovely grey concrete-inspired porcelain floor tiles and repeating the subway tiles of the kitchen for continuity. A modern, functional and organic outcome is achieved.
The Team at KWD can source, specify and supply all of the hard finishes used in the construction of Fjall. We have current stock holdings of the Calacutta, European Oak Flooring, Bluestone, Subway Tiles, Porcelain Tiles and Eames chairs ready for immediate delivery.
