Reiulf Ramstad reveals design for French landscape hotel and spa with 'Nordic temperament'

Norwegian architect Reiulf Ramstad has revealed the design his firm have created for a hotel that will be blended into the landscape of the Alsace hills in France.

Construction on the Breitenbach Landscape Hotel will begin in the next few months. Conceived to “gather the best of architecture, design, spa facilities and food culture in the region”, several distinctive architectural forms will be spread across the valley to create “a specific architectural expression.”

Fourteen Norwegian-inspired cabins – from 20 to 60 square metres – will house the guest rooms, offering privacy while providing views of the surrounding hills. Natural and light materials will be used, including recycled wood, to refer to “the Nordic temperament”, with large glass openings letting daylight in.

The restaurant, spa and sauna will be housed in a main building, which will also host exhibitions of local art and culture.

Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter’s previous leisure projects include new homes for the Romsdal Folk Museum in Molde and the Norwegian Mountaineering Center in the country’s Romsdalen Valley.

They recently won an invited competition to create a vast cultural hub, topped by a timber tower enclosed in glass, next to Oslo’s historic railway station. That project, called Fjordporten, will be the largest mixed-use complex in Norway.
