The lowest floor is the Ski Room where there are lockers a powder room a wall of ski-boot warmers and a small enclosed ski repair room tucked in the corner where you can hone and wax your skis near the Guest Laundry Room. From this lower level you can ski directly onto the slopes.

The show-stopper for me would be the one-of-a-kind oversized custom lighting fixtures throughout which act like the jewelry in the spaces. They are delicately detailed dangling sparkling and very shiny to contrast against all of the hard rustic features of the home.

The key to creating a modern glam loft is knowing when to hold back. This look is every bit as subtle as it is stunning. While not as luxe as a penthouse featuring mirrored furniture and Hollywood Regency flair the glamour comes from the little things: a marble surface here and there a shiny light fixture or a geometric patterned rug. Clean-lined furniture keeps the elegance in check.
In the case of the Baleia Condos the forestry foliage of South America and the romantic shores of Baleia were catalysts for something fabulous.

This nature-infused abode is enveloped by lush greens and aromatic flowers – plants that are found only in the Southern Hemisphere.
