The unique, forested hillside setting with spectacular views of Mount Yotei, the Niseko-Annupuri ski mountain and alpine horizon has inspired a master plan that has preserved the rich character of the site and enabled every chalet to enjoy its benefits. The native silver birch forest, ever-changing with the seasons, providing cool shade in summer and expansive panoramas in winter has been cultivated as necessary to both optimize privacy between residences and ensure access to views.

Project Type: Master Plan

Completion: Winter 2018

Forested land has been set aside as a park for communal enjoyment, together with a skier access trail earmarked for intrepid adventurers. Roads and sidewalks are designed to minimize physical and visual impact on the natural habitat, while being heated to ensure safety. Utilities, including power, telecommunications and water are all underground.
