This Brutalist beauty peers down from Mount Forberget in the Swedish resort of Are. Designed by the American architect Peter Bohlin, who's known for some eye-catching Apple stores in the US, Copperhill stands out from the picturesque peaks with a stark charcoal-hued exterior. The look is softened inside with earthy tones, intriguing sculptures, bath products by Swedish-born Kerstin Florian and Scandinavian design pieces. An expanded spa for this season adds to the overall comfort.
