Modern Rustic retreat in Georgia by architect Levan Mushkudiani — Bakuriani, Georgia
Amongst the spruce at the foot of Kokhta Gora, a 2,200 metre peak in a newly-developed resort just a hop and skip from Bakuriani, where Georgia’s Winter Olympians traditionally hone their skills, Rooms Hotel Kokhta is the latest addition to Temur Ugulava’s sleek design-oriented lifestyle chain.
The ark-like wood and glass ski-in ski-out affair, conceived by architect Levan Mushkudiani sits at the confluence of ski runs, hiking and horseback trails, making it ideal for year-round use.
For those who prefer indoor pursuits, expansive views from the health club and pool bring the outdoors in. Best described as Modern Rustic, interiors are the work of designers, Nata Janberidze and Keti Toloraia, who met whilst training at the Tbilisi Academy of Arts; warm, organic spaces, with a hint of place that make loving use of wood, stone and polished clay. §
