Mountain Resort

PAUL KALOUSTIAN ARCHITECT as Architects

The mountain resort is located in the Northern province of Lori. It is a resort  in the vicinity of the Smart Center which is the only structure that marks its scenery.

 

The program consisting of a restaurant, a SPA with an outdoor pool and 20 suites.Each suite of the resort enjoys a direct and independent entrance and opens up to the uninterrupted visual bond with the mountains. The units are meticulously scenographed to create a new landscape that becomes a hybrid of nature and architecture. The resort is immersed in the landscape becoming an integral part of it.

 

These units embody the randomness of trees or rocks in nature without preconceptions. This is reflected by the fragments forming a loosely defined yet articulate pattern of forms under a thin roof that seems to be lightly placed over them.  The rooms allow for shaded areas in between communal outdoor spaces that have a friendly human scale, that nevertheless open on their sides to the widely spreading landscape. By freeing the reinforced concrete canopy of the roof from the volumes underneath, an unexpected visual fluidity and lightness is achieved. The strive is to impregnate the visitor with a desire to experience nature, to make them effortlessly discover new perspectives within the landscape and to reveal a world of poetry and sensitivity.
