A unique façade was chosen for these luxury ski chalets in Lebanon, just one hour from Beirut. Accoya wood fins have been placed on the entire building in a vertical direction, including over the windows, balconies and doors, acting like louvres to provide sun shading and maximum privacy and protection from the climate.
This seamless continuation of Accoya wood elongates the building, creating a bold aesthetic. A total of 80m3 of Accoya wood has been used for this project with each fin measuring 50mm in thickness. Despite the cold and snowy location, Accoya wood is an ideal material as it is exceptionally durable.
The wood has been coated with a gray glaze finish, making the Accoya darker than it would be naturally and masking the weathering process.
