alpine ski apartments

slovenian practice OFIS architects has completed 'alpine ski apartments', a building in the small north-western town of 
kranjska gora, slovenia. the shape of the structure is largely dictated by the plot size and strict building requirements. 
once the maximum dimensions were established, the volume was manipulated by removing horizontal and vertical blocks 
of space from the main mass. the inward sloping roof and horizontal cut conceals the chimneys and ventilation pipes. 
the elimination of the corners produces voids for balconies.
