Don’t you think it is a beautiful retreat for blogger or even retirement? Perhaps you might disagree my point. But I think it is a incredible architecture settlement in its beautiful landscape, Gudbrandsjuvet in Norway.
In fact, this is a hotel tourist project Juvet Landscape Hotel with 6 unique plans designed by Jensen & Skodvin Architects. Each hotel room has its own incredible view over the dramatic landscape.
+ architect’s statement, Jensen & Skodvin Architects
One of the local residents at Gudbrandsjuvet, Knut Slinning, is building a landscape hotel. The idea emerged at another site, Aurland, but was not realized there.
Basically each room is a detached small independent house with one, or sometimes two of the walls constructed in glass. The landscape in which these rooms are placed is by most people considered spectacularly beautiful and varied and the topography allows a layout where no room looks at another. In this way every room gets its own surprising view of a dramatic piece of landscape, always changing with the weather and the time of the day and the season.
