Slow Horse is the kind of hotel that beckons you like the most appealing of destinations. Nestled in the small ski-town of Piancavallo in Italy's Dolomite Mountains, the hotel's architecture is an attraction unto itself.
"Just like a child, the building will play with snow, compacting and piling it in specific places, pre-defined by the shape of roof and facades: ice will be part of the game and stalactites the ornament of the building. The partial demolition of the original building allowed us to use the ground floor as a entrance, with all those functions connected with governance and services of the hotel. The rest of the building bridges the old part; on top of a concrete platform, suspended just enough from the old structure, it has been designed to evoke the aura of old mountain structures but it is indeed the result of quite a sophisticated technological and structural thinking."
The hotel was designed by the Italy-based elasticospa.
