Architects are hoping to build a new spa north of Reykjavik, inspired by an Icelandic saga and the country’s majestic landscape.
The Red Mountain Resort and Spa will be arranged by Snæfellsjöku, a 700,000-year-old icy mass secured stratovolcano. There are wide glass windows displaying clearing sees housetops and a red outside to mix into the volcanic territory, to guarantee a feeling of isolation and disengagement.
“In a place so staggering as Iceland I think it is essential to make spaces that offer in excess of a lovely lodging room, a pool and a decent view,” says planner Johannes Torpe, whose organization Johannes Torpe Studios made the plan. “Our approach was to grasp the difference between man-made development and nature. The scene is unparalleled in its magnificence and neighborhood stories of mythical people and trolls include a layer of magic and powerful verse to everything.”
The proposition incorporates a 150-room lodging in addition to a tangible spa encounter is intended to emulate the voyage of half-man, half-troll Bárður Snæfellsás, an Icelandic adventure in which Bárður is said to have disavowed the universe of people for isolation and quietness inside the icy mass.
Visitors will go through five passionate states in the spa, which will highlight a wide range of kinds of steam: examination, presentation, showdown, lucidity and edification. It׳s trusted they wioll have their own particular variant of self-revelation likened to Bárður’s in the story. “Our aspiration was to make a spa encounter that brings you nearer to nature in a somewhat overstated manner. It was to be an encounter that at the same time grounds you and frees you,” says Torpe.
