Penda Designs a Getaway for Skiers in China

Penda has come up with an apartment inspired by the thought of melting snow. Fittingly, the getaway is situated by a ski hill, and meant for those that want to hit the slopes for the weekend.

The apartment overall is quite minimalist, with white walls (presumably to signify the snow), and lighter wood flooring and accents throughout. Wooden boxes are placed in the walls throughout the place, which allow people to sit back and relax after a long day of skiing. These additions also help with the melting snow effect, as the surrounding area is a whitewashed wall.

The Snow Apartment as it's so fittingly called, gives the owners an escape from the city and time for the hills.
