As far as architecture with green building materials goes, the Quadrum Ski & Yoga Resort in upper Gudauri, Georgia has created the perfect boutique space with minimal environmental impact. Their entire resort has been built with reused shipping containers; stacking them on the Caucasus mountainside on stilts to enhance and not overpower the landscape.
At 7,200 feet above sea-level, the resort offers single rooms to family rooms, all with deluxe comfort and aesthetics. Each suite has a terrace, large windows to bring in natural lighting and enjoy the surrounding mountain views. Decorated with contemporary minimalism, it has been displayed as the first boutique hotel in the Caucasus Mountains, with year-round activities such as Skiing, Yoga, Fitness and Swimming.
Built in a pyramid shape, and sourcing local building materials, this resort is the pinnacle of striking environmentally friendly architecture and design, showcasing the ease with which you can easily convert a shipping container into a place of comfort and serenity.
