Norwegian Landscape Hotel

Is it me, or on 99.9% of commercial and hospitality construction projects, the landscape is the last thing to be considered? I have no expectation that the landscape would be first (though sometimes it should be) but at least not the piece that the contractors are trying to scrape together a budget for before they leave the site……. So I find this Concept hotel refreshing.
It is all about the Landscape. Right from the beginning.

This is the design of Norwegian architectural firm Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor (JSA). Each room is a detached building with one or two of the walls constructed in glass. The hilly Norwegian landscape in which these rooms are placed is considered spectacularly beautiful. No rooms look at each other and each is given it’s own dramatic piece of landscape with weather, time and seasons constantly changing the view. I really like how you can see that the landscape really becomes part of the interior decoration.
