Slow Horse Hotel

In the small ski-resort town of Piancavallo high in the Dolomites of Northeast Italy - a town that is really only activated upon the first snowfall of the year - the 'Slow Horse' Hotel injects a sobering architectural gem contrasting an array of lavish structures. In a setting where the public comes to play with the snow, the building itself plays with the accumulation or dispersion of snow, incorporating ice stalactites into the winter aesthetic.  Designed by italian practice Elastico Spa, the completed edifice is the result of a partial reconstruction of an existing building.
