Eternal sun shines at Norway hotel

Magda Ibrahim

Concrete has unveiled its designs at Hotel Norge in Bergen, including a giant sun in the lobby.

A destination hotel has opened in the Norwegian city of Bergen, featuring a collection of unique spaces that aim to capture the ambience of the city.

Travellers are transported by escalator to the lobby on the second floor, that is lit by a giant sun that changes colour depending on the season and mood. The idea is to reflect the fact that sunlight is scarce in Bergen and bring an eternal sunshine to the hotel, part of the Scandic group. 

Meanwhile, the escalator links guests to the brasserie-like Café Norge, which includes spaces to eat, drink, work or lounge. 

An iconic wooden staircase that connects the two floors can be transformed into a stage for lectures and performances, while the central bar serves freshly made breakfast in the morning or exotic cocktails at night. 

The hotel’s restaurant has been designed as a sequence of rooms that can be connected or separated, each with its own intimate atmosphere. 

The soft walls display mesmerising horizons that reflect the beauty of nature and its ever-changing scenery. 

In the hotel’s guest rooms, the Norwegian concept of ‘Hytte’ – a cottage-like sanctuary – is recreated as a way for travellers to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

The WIN Awards showcase the very best global creativity and talent in interior design across categories covering interior products, practice and projects as well as branding concepts.
