Designed as cabin style accommodation, the Alpine Cube is at the mercy of extreme alpine weather conditions.

With some of the best stargazing in the world, an ever-changing skyline, fresh air and water straight from the mountains, the 50sqm cabin allows occupants to reconnect with nature.

Abodo’s Tundra Cladding with Iron Vitriol finish was selected as cladding – after 12 months of weathering the façade is blending perfectly into its surroundings.

Iron Vitriol is an ancient Scandinavian method of colouring wood, and will weather back into a brown grey patina over time. Book the Alpine Cube to experience the alpine life.
