Snøhetta is a name you’re familiar with if you frequent this site, as we’ve featured a couple of the firm’s otherworldly structures. It should come as no surprise, then, that the latest is once again incredibly unique and absolutely stunning. Svart is a new hotel in the Arctic Circle that’s energy positive. What does that mean? It means it produces its own energy, which is of extreme importance in the Arctic. The circular hotel also reduces yearly energy consumption by 85%, so its addition to such a place won’t interfere with its delicate surroundings. Of course, a powerhouse building that looks like a drab office complex wouldn’t really garner attention, so Svart follows the Snøhetta design ethos, with 360° views, blue colors that echo the glacier ice around the hotel, and a wooden support system inspired by structures used to dry fish. Oh, and a great view of the Northern Lights ain’t too shabby either.
