Sustainable Living: Svart Powerhouse Hotel

Svart Powerhouse Hotel is the word's first Powerhouse hotel above the arctic circle! In collaboration with Arctic Adventures of Norway, Snohetta Architects have built the world's northernmost Powerhouse hotel, reducing yearly energy consumption by approximately 85% and produces its own energy, with private terraces casting a shadow that eliminates the need for artificial cooling. Inspired by the local fishing heritage of Northern Norway, Snohetta's design pays tribute to vernacular architecture and enables a 360-degree view of Holandsfjorden Fjord and the alpine landscape.
