Kosodrevina, Nízke Tatry
Miroslav Begán
about 1958 – 1960

The chalet Kosodrevina was built at the turn of 1950s and 1960s on a midway cableway station on the southern slopes of Chopok mountain. It is covered with a light sloping roof with a podium at the ground level shaped with elegantly angled lines. This gave the architecture a momentum typical of the period of its creation. Otherwise, however, the interior of the hotel is based on a standard compact layout with a common section at the extended ground level and standard triple-aisle lodging quarters on the three floors above.
