A skier will see one thing right away when looking at the design for the 95-room luxury North Slope Ski Hotel—an actual ski slope. “I had never seen a structure before where the ski slope was incorporated into the structure,” Jantzen says. “It seemed like an interesting thing to explore from a design point. The aesthetics of the structure to me symbolically related to a snow-covered mountain and trees on the top, the trees being the wind turbines.”
