Our first Igloo Hotel was built in 2000, every year we change theme and construction. All exterior and interior is made of snow and ice; rooms, the beds, even the glasses in the bar. The hotel has approximately 30 rooms, suites, ice gallery, and ice-chapel. The hotel is decorated with ice sculptures – beautiful artwork created by talented sculptors. Along with the pure white snow it creates a fairytale atmosphere inside.
Juvet Landscape Hotel
norway, Alstad (added: 24/11/2012)
The architects Jensen & Skodvin aimed to create a landscape hotel that blended in with the terrain. The result is seven small «cubes» on stilts, with glass walls facing the gorge. The interior is dark to avoid taking attention away from the scenery. The landscape is so varied that none of the rooms are alike, and each room has its own individual view. Outside the landscape is constantly changing – according to the weather, the time of day and season.
