Fjall (pronounced fee-all) is a complete refurbishment, transforming a 1960s chalet into six true European style ski-in ski-out apartments, in a contemporary context. The name Fjall refers to the mountainous landscape in Scandinavia. Fittingly, the design adheres to the Scandinavian Design aesthetic of functionality and elegance, but with an Australian alpine sensibility. Each apartment features smoked and limed oak timber floors, wall paneling, custom designed oak timber joinery, Calacutta marble, heated balconies for après ski entertaining, cozy window banquettes and all manner of colloquial chalet accessories such as antlers, hides and stacked logs.
Now in its eleventh year, Shaw Contract’s Design Awards program honors architecture and design firms that are changing the way people engage and interact with a space.
