Modern Adventure Thingvellir, Iceland
Set against a backdrop of majestic mountainous lava fields and natural geothermal hot springs in a stunning primeval landscape, this unique award winning hotel is the collaborative creation of Los Angeles based designers and architects and native Icelanders.
A former inn for local plant workers, the abandoned buildings have been repurposed and completely transformed from their humble beginnings into an inspired and luxuriously modern hotel. Employing innovative and recycled materials and sustainable environmentally responsible practices, this chic installation was inspired by the raw beauty and unique features of the land. Jutting out from the base of the mountain atop a series of giant angled pillars, the design was positioned specifically to capture and showcase the Aurora Borealis. A stylish synthesis of contemporary Scandinavian minimalism and warm natural materials, it’s both a statement in design and how we live in the natural world.
With a total of forty five rooms, each is a slight variation in back to basics modernism earthy ambience and understated sophistication. Expansive and spacious, most have sweeping views, floor to ceiling windows and charming photographic murals of Icelandic ponies.
The restaurant serves farm-fresh locally sourced cuisine while the Northern Lights Bar and lounge will treat you to panoramic views and chic spot to enjoy the company of friends.
