Set to be built on the west coast of Fedje, Norway, the hotel designed by Saunders Architecture will offer a "quiet refuge" for tourists who want to experience living on island time.

"Over the past three years we have been working on a series of three projects for this island of 578 people in the North Atlantic. The projects focus on rural business, culture, destination architecture and the people of the island."

"We want the feeling inside and out to reflect the simple ways Nordic countries experience their own version of luxury, one that is based on less noise, extremely good craftsmanship, yet a simple uncomplicated palette of materials, food, and experiences," Saunders added.

The project forms part of a wider masterplan that Saunders Architecture is developing with the owner of local whisky distillery, which will also involve the creation of two new villages. It responds to the shrinking and ageing population of Fedje and is hoped to create more opportunities for tourism on the island to support the distillery and other emerging businesses.
