Colors of Iceland

Hotel and Spa

One of the first things you experience when moving through the Icelandic landscape is the diversity of expressions and experiences the scenery possesses. We started to wonder, what are the building blocks of this unique landscape?

After analysing general and local distinctiveness, our desire has been to try to capture “the Icelandic” and emphasize or further build these qualities in the project. This means intro­ducing the contrasts between the local and remote views.

In this hotel and spa facility we want to offer the visitor a wide range of potential experi­­­ences. The project is divided, both programmatically and contextual. Being placed up against a ridge in the landscape, the experiences of the surroundings are continuously changing when moving through the building. Framing the unique local views has been one of the corner stones in designing this project.
