The project is located in Niseko Town, a Japanese town known for its ski tourism industry. The GWP Architects refer to the grace and beauty of the snow mountain purified by lights and shadows as the source of inspiration, forming a dynamic syntax of the architectural exterior that resembles the curves waving along the mountains and dispersing the surrounding mist. The curves impress each visitor by the visual experience of living amid clouds and become a name card for the town. It expresses people's belief in a better life in the future under the epidemic situation.
