The Snow Apartment / penda: Inspired by Nature

Snow Apt

The design of the apartment is inspired by a melting snowfield in spring, when nature slowly revives from winter and offers a contrast of cold and warm, white and colored. This atmosphere was translated into architecture by hand-plastered, white shells, which cover walls and the ceiling and create a seamless space, which guides visitors naturally through the apartment. The curves of the interior responds in a very direct way to the outside landscape of mountains and valleys.

Below, we share 12 examples of how the historically inexpensive, rough material, can create a beautiful space with a finished look.
