Don’t Fight the Snow, Build an Apartment Building with an Outdoor Ski Slope
A slope attached to housing in Kazakhstan lets skiers shred anytime
Kazakhstan is no stranger to the harsh winter season. That’s why Shokhan Mataibekov, the brain behind The Slalom House, has proposed it as a 21-story residential apartment with an outdoor ski slope starting from its roof. The proposal is currently in the hands of the Union of Architects of Kazakhstan.
Mataibekov, a skier himself, thought of the idea as he would travel four hours to reach the nearest ski slope. On the other hand, the Slalom House will be built in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.
