Architecture firm Snøhetta has unveiled pictures of it's design for a unbelievable mountain view hotel. The Lofoten Opera Hotel will be located in Norway's Lofoten island chain.

The construction is expected to start later this year. The hotel is situated on a site in Glåpen, offering views of a nearby mountain range and across the sea to the south and west. The hotel is a low-rise structure that will loop around a central courtyard while still being able to offer spectacular views of the scenery. Snøhetta made a statement saying, "the spectacular view and the feeling of being 'in the middle' of the elements are the premier qualities of the site."

The 11,000 square-metre building will incorporate spas, seawater basins, hiking resources and an amphitheater. The curved building will house a mix of hotels and apartments.
