Ion Adventure Hotel In Iceland

Tag: architecturedesignHotelTRAVELbemore store meranicelandaround the world

“Where everything meets nothing.” That’s the slogan of the Ion Adventure Hotel located in Iceland. It refers to the immensities of luxury and beauty — both within the confines of the hotel and in its surrounding environment — desolate, yet resplendent. The Ion Adventure Hotel in the incomparable Nesjavellir region of Iceland offers an otherworldly experience in the land of the midnight sun. The Ion Adventure Hotel experience has something for the solitude seeker and something for the person who desires a wild, unbelievable adventure. The stunning hotel resides near huge glaciers and beneath mountainous lava fields carved by icy rivers. Forge into the wilderness and the unknown — or take a scenic drive to the nearby capital of Reykjavik. Warm up in the hot tubs, a perfect salve to the ridged environment. End your night by stargazing and catching the beautiful emerald and indigo phenomenon of the aurora borealis, with no light pollution to obscure your pristine view.

SNOHETTA UNDERWATER RESTAURANT IN NORWAY

Seaside restaurants are great and all, but how about reserving a table for two in the deep blue sea? New York and Oslo-based architectural firm Snohetta want to make that a reality with their jaw-dropping Underwater restaurant. The large, concrete building will look something like a periscope half-submerged in water and propped up against the shore. Located in the Norwegian village of Baly, this proposed building will feature an exclusive dining establishment seating a reported 100 people underwater along with a marine studies facility. A main attraction of the building will be the 11-meter wide panoramic window located at the submerged end of the tube-like structure – allowing those dining to look out onto the ocean floor. The meter-thick concrete walls will protect guests from the harsh, unwelcoming ocean, while the course concrete will serve as a home for mussels and other sea life to attach themselves to. A symbiotic relationship if we’ve ever seen one.

INVERTED PYRAMID SOLO HOUSE BY TNA ARCHITECTS

Tag: architectureCONTEMPORARY HOMESdesignbemore storenewsinterior designmeranfashion

If you’ve ever wondered what architects will do when left to their own devices, this is your answer. Meet the Pyramid Solo House by TNA Architects. This wild pyramid is just one of 12 ‘Solo House’ projects underway in Matarrana, Spain – a mountainous area in the eastern part of the country. That broader project is an attempt by French developer Christian Bourdais to capture where the cutting edge of architecture stands at the beginning of the 21st century. This particular example out of the dozen being built right now was put together by Tokyo-based firm Makoto Takei + Chie Nabeshima TNA. The two Japanese architects have a distinct style that defies the surrounding landscape yet somehow manages not to confront it. The interior of the home features large, open-air rooms, stairs that climb up the side of the inside of the inverse pyramid, and a full kitchen. Of course, the most dream-like part of the whole project is the large, pyramidal pool adjacent to the gravity-defying home. We’re assuming the pool floats are triangular, too.

SOHO FARMHOUSE RETREAT

Tag: soho farmhouse retreatsoho housearchitectureTRAVELVACATIONWEEKEND RETREAT

While private clubs will always call P.G. Wodehouse to mind, they’ve changed a huge deal since they were the smokey and exclusive hangouts of well off members of the British upper class. Just as exclusive as they used to be (maybe more so), Soho House’s clubs are as much architectural treasures as they are retreats for the wealthy. Just take a look at the Soho Farmhouse for example. Located on a 100 acre farmhouse in the county of Oxfordshire, far from urban bustle, this retreat doesn’t cut any corners. Boasting 40 separate and individually designed cabins and a main area that includes dinning areas, a gym, boathouse, bar, movie theater, yoga studio, and sauna – guests are not left wanting more. The retreat’s boathouse is a real stand out on the property – with cobblestone floors, terrace roof, and reclaimed wood it has a modern feel that still manages to translate a sense of heritage. Unfortunately (for us at least), if you want to visit the Soho Farmhouse designed by Michaelis Boyd, you’ll have to manage to become a member first.

ATTIC LOFT BY CUNS STUDIO

Tag: architecturebemorestoredesignfashion stores meranLOFTMeranostephan walderMichelina Majcherkiewicz-ChmielowskaJedrzej SobkiewiczNash Bridges

Leave it to innovative Europeans to take their ethos of open living to the architectural world. Polish architects Michelina Majcherkiewicz-Chmielowska and Jedrzej Sobkiewicz designed this stylish and incredibly spacious loft within the shopping, arts and business district of Poznan, Poland. The unique, semi-partitioned design sets this loft apart from other converted spaces around the world. But here’s the kicker: the real inspiration for the design comes from everyone’s favorite San Fran investigator, good old Nash Bridges. The owner’s love for the fun-loving, free spirited crime-fighting hero inspired the clean architectural look for this dwelling. And Nash’s “no borders” approach to life lives on with this open-living style loft. With rooms only partially walled off, clearly the limited amount of privacy may not be for everyone. However, for those who don’t mind living in public, this Nash Bridges influenced apartment provides a trendy alternative to the traditional living arrangement.
