BIG wins a competition in Lapland
The project by BIG, winner of a competition on invitation, attempts to transform the existing ski resort of Levi into a world-ranking ski attraction with services for skiers of all levels and top quality accommodations.

Koutalaki Ski Village, designed by BIG architects, consists of four separate buildings which emanate like rays from a central square and fit into the land, sloping gently down to earth.

The buildings are inhabitable artificial mountains; in winter they become ski slopes, while in spring and summer they establish visual continuity with the green natural landscape.

The layout of the buildings creates a central square destined for other activities such as ice skating and musical performances.
