"Welcome to Svart - the World's first energy positive hotel concept by the Artic Circle, with 360° view of the Svartisen glacier and artic nature." - Svart
Planned to open in 2022, a collaboration between MIRIS, Snøhetta and Powerhouse, this is a true nordic wonder!
Svart reduces its yearly energy consumption by 85%, and it harvests enough solar energy to cover not only the hotel operations, but also the energy that is needed to construct the building to begin with.
"Building in a fragile environment comes with clear obligations in terms of creating a sustainabe tourist destination." - Svart
Situated just above the Arctic Circle, Svart is nestled within breathtaking coastline where the summer days last forever and the winters are lit by the Northern Lights.
The round architecture of the hotel, inspired by local coastal building traditions, offer a panoramic view of the surrounding fjord.
"An experience of living in proximity with nature" - Svart
Not only is Svart a sustainable powerhouse, they offer some of the most incredible experiences of artic nature, such as "glacier hikes, northern light expeditions, practicitng yoga in the midnight sun, dive in spectacular waters, harvest local delicacies" and many more.
