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.

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.
