Sochi in Russia is the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics. With an eye on these events sandellsandberg have been commisioned to design a holiday resort on the outskirts of the city. The site consists of a forested slope with views of the Black Sea below. The freestanding summer houses are raised on columns, appearing to hover above the landscape with minimal impact on the natural beauty of the site. Green facades allow the buildings to further blend into the surroundings.
