The only kind of browsing preferable to looking at amazing houses is looking at amazing hotels. They seem that little bit more attainable, because one day we actually might be able to book a stay at them, but that dream house in the Hollywood Hills isn’t going to be ours anytime soon. This hotel in Nesjavellir, Iceland is definitely one we’d want to stay in. Santa Monica-based design studio Minarc took on the task of renovating this abandoned building in the middle of the Icelandic wilderness. The hotel has been built with prefab-panel construction and makes use of nearby hot springs for geothermal heating, also taking care to incorporate sustainable materials. If the architecture wasn’t enough, the hotel connects travelers with the landscape through access to the hot springs and glaciers, as well as the magical glow of the Northern Lights.
