Viceroy Kopaonik Resort combines the local vernacular with contemporary living to provide luxury ski accommodation amongst the natural beauty of Kopaonik National Park.
The architectural language takes inspiration from the local style, contrasting dark timber finishes with white plaster. Careful detailing and clever use of materials ensure a beautifully crafted building which respects the vernacular and local environment, but also has a sophisticated, modern twist. Traditional overhanging eaves are exaggerated to provide shelter for balconies and are held up by vertical timber finishes which act as screens. Stone paneling on the lower storeys roots the building to the ground, joining it with the surrounding landscape. Through good cooperation with “WATG” for architectural and Landscape design and “Wimberly Interiors“ for interior design we managed to reach the goal. The collaboration with “GOCO Hospitality” for SPA and fitness, “EQ2LIGHT”for interior lighting and “RICCA” for kitchen technology gave the final touch to our success.
