Designed by leading sustainable architecture practice Environa Studio, WSW aims for statement architecture that enhances its setting and the user experience, while being carbon neutral and setting new environmental benchmarks for a building of its type. 


Architect Tone Wheeler says: “Rather than the industrial-style shopping-centre-cum-indoor-ski-slopes of old, we wanted a building that contributed positively in every way to its surroundings.  The winter use areas have been designed essentially as a giant ‘esky’, with multi-layered levels of insulation and few if any windows, with a high efficiency mechanical plant making both chilled air and snow or ice.”

“The entire operation, including the hotel, will run from a 1.2 megawatt power supply of photovoltaic solar cells on the roof, the equivalent of 220 homes with PV panels, run through an onsite battery storage facility.”
