Alta Chalet Is a Modern Take on Blue Mountains’ Traditional Barn

Nestled within a private ski club development in Ontario’s Blue Mountains, this striking monochrome chalet hides a contemporary, inverted interior to maximize the views of the surrounding hills.

In designing Alta Chalet, Atelier Kastelic Buffey embraced the conventions of the vernacular architecture, reinterpreting the area’s traditional barn in subtle new ways.

With 3,000 square feet of living space split across two levels, the modern winter retreat offers an open-plan concept kitchen, dining, and living area, as well as a sauna and an outdoor hot tub deck. Drawing on Nordic rustic minimalism, spaces are sleek, sparse, and sunny, with floor-to-ceiling windows, elegant designer accents, and lots of light natural wood adding warmth and softness to the crisp whitewashed walls.
