STUNNING pictures and video footage have revealed a £3,000 per week deconstructed hotel based at an idyllic, isolated Norwegian getaway eighteen miles by ferry across the sea from the nearest shop.
The incredible images show the monofunctional cluster of houses with where four are meant for sleep, one is meant to inspire on its column, one is a kitchen house, one is a studio house, one is a sauna on a pier, and one is meant for cleaning yourself – making twelve buildings in total.
The spectacular resort, named Fordypningsrommet, is meant to be a beautiful workspace for artists or other creatives where they can go to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The small isle offers a secluded working environment in an area of awe-inspiring natural beauty, surrounded by wild sea.
Due to the single function of each house you need three houses to have the most important functions – to eat, sleep and bath.
There are no shops, cars or wild animals on the isle which offers ‘no stress’. As such any potential tourists must pack their own food for their stay.
There will be six annual one week Artist in Residences this year in collaboration between the resort and the culture department at Nordland County Council.
A boat must be used to travel to the secluded location although there is public transportation to Fleinvær with speed ferry from downtown Bodø. On average, there are two daily departures to and from the island.
Guests can book a host who will act as their personal guide to the site and surrounding environment as well as assist in more practical matters, such as getting the all-important sauna going.
