A new ski and yoga resort located in the Caucasus Mountains has taken a unique approach to promoting eco-friendly practices by constructing the entirety of the resort out of reused shipping containers.
The Quadrum Ski and Yoga Resort in Georgia was recently built about 7,200 feet above sea level on the slopes of the Gudauri Ski Resort. According to the Quadrum’s website, it is located just a short stroll away from one of the lifts at Gudauri.
Described by The Sun as “the first boutique hotel” in the Caucasus Mountains, those involved with the construction of Quadrum tout its environmentally-conscious construction method.
“The architect Sandro Ramishvili and Irakli Eristavi are the minds behind this extraordinary creation,” a spokesperson for Copter, the Georgian photography company that captured images of the new property, told the Daily Mail. “Built in a minimalist style, the hotel seems to repeat the local terrain, cascading down the mountainside.”
“The philosophy behind the project was to safeguard the environment from the harmful effects of work and leisure,” the spokesperson continued. “While building the hotel, not only has the landscape been untouched, but the materials used to build it were environmentally friendly and of local production.”
