Bull Stockwell Allen designed a first-of-its-kind, semi-enclosed pavilion that wraps around the Kancamagus 8 lift at Loon Mountain Resort. North America’s most technologically advanced chair lift, Kanc8 is an eight-seat, D-Line Doppelmayr chair with ergonomically shaped heated seats and tinted bubble. Opening up to an adjacent plaza, the Kanc8 pavilion creates a multi-use assembly space that stretches its value beyond the winter and ski season for year-round utilization. Kanc8 will provide skiers a covered loading experience, protecting them from the elements in the winter, and a loading base for bikers in the summer months. This custom open-air structure is notably different from its predecessor in drastic and eye-catching ways; with versatility and high-performing functionality being a critical consideration in this design, aesthetics were upheld to just as high a priority and standard, resulting in this stunning structure that nestles perfectly and unobtrusively into, rather than on, the site.
