The Impressive Lofoten Opera Hotel by Snøhetta

Who better than Snøhetta to create an out of this world building on a landmark location:


The always innovative and always creative Snøhetta architecture practice has developed the showstopping project for Lofoten Opera Hotel in Norway.

Snøhetta has developed a project and looked at a number of factors: the landscape “critical load” vs. new construction, functional and technical aspects of access, infrastructure, ecology and sustainability, connection to outdoors areas and existing buildings. The main goal is to find the development patterns and shapes that trigger the functional, architectural and experiential triggers the plot `s formidable potential. We think it will be essential to find a building program and a scale that “hits”, both in terms of economy, market and individual experience opportunities.
