Horizon Neighbourhood, designed by esteemed Canadian architecture firm MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple, is the first pre-designed neighborhood to be built at 9,000 feet elevation on Powder Mountain, Utah. It consists of 30 cabins ranging in size from 1,000- 3,000 square feet.

Commissioned as a home base for Summit Series, an ambitious speaker program that attracts a community of innovators and social impact investors from a broad range of fields, this new village is an architectural expression of Summit’s values: community building, climate responsiveness, and land stewardship.

MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple’s modest cabins stand in contrast to the excessive architecture that is now typical of resorts in the Mountain West.

This is MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple’s first completed project of many currently in construction in the United States since opening a satellite studio in Denver last year.

The practice is well known for drawing on regional building practices and material culture, as well as looking to local climate and landscape, to create responsive contemporary architecture that expresses archetypal qualities and universal resonance.
