Kiroro was a successful competition for a ski resort including over 1000 residential apartments, 500 luxury villas, 2 commercial town centres and ski infrastructure.

The concept employs a mix of traditional Japanese materials and crafts with contemporary Australian architecture to produce a winning competition entry, delicate to the landscape and luxurious for tourists.

The buildings are used to define the ski areas and iconic central ski lift terminal. Ground level retail opens onto a terrace which overlooks the ski zone and terminal, offering both ski-in ski-out accomodation and world class apres-ski dining opportunities. 
After successfully winning the design competition, Fender Katsalidis is now tasked with the subsequent design and documentation of the buildings. 

Ian Mann was responsible for the delivery of this project while working for Fender Katsalidis Mirams Architects in Sydney.
