swedish firm murman arkitekter have been awarded first prize in the holiday category at the world architecture festival in barcelona, for their design of restaurant tusen in ramundberget, sweden. the swedish ski resort is situated in ramundberget on a small hill where the tree line meets the mountains.

 

the facade material is given by the surrounding nature, birch logs stands like a huge protecting screen towards the nordic icy winds. they used the same material for the restaurant in exterior as well as the interior. the round shape is natural in the exposed situation and it lets the snow stay on the facade. it lets the cold winds pass and it offers maximum views, forming a protected outdoor space where you can sit in the sun towards the white mountains.
