Called Svart, this hotel will generate its own clean energy and provide a luxurious experience for visitors.
With a circular shape and installed on water, the Svart hotel aims to revolutionize the way tourism is done. It is an annular building with more than 100 rooms in the north of Norway, in the Arctic Circle, specially designed to see the northern lights.
Svart will be the first custom resort to run on clean energy. The objective of this hotel, in addition to providing a different experience to its guests, is to function entirely with the energy it produces.

In this way, Svart is positioned as an innovative and unique space in the world so far. The care for the environment is one of the most important points for this hotel, as well as the awareness of its visitors on the subject.
Svart not only wants its guests to enjoy the landscape but also to learn to do ecological tourism. That they are responsible and are interested in the protection and preservation of nature as well as other environmental problems in the world. The hotel wants to show that travellers can contribute to caring for the planet without sacrificing the luxuries and comforts of modern life.
