Small Module built in the Interior of an Old Barn with Wonderful views of the Myrkdalen Valley in Norway

By • Nov 21, 2017

This villa is located in a dream setting in Myrkdalen, a ski resort in Norway, with spectacular views over the valley. It was remodeled in 2016, as it had been abandoned for a long period of time. As such, it had fallen into disrepair and had deteriorated due to the passage of time.

The firm OPA Form was in charge of the remodeling work, carried out by Marina Bauer and Espen Folgerø, who managed to create a new world in a space of only 25 square meters. The result is a small module inside the old granary that provides all the comfort that may be needed to sleep well, a refuge that lovers of the sky, nature, and mountains will enjoy to the maximum.

Circular entrance to the small module inside the barn

It is a small space completely covered in wood, warm and welcoming, and from where guests can enjoy the wonderful and unforgettable views that the snowy mountains provide. Without a doubt, a unique spectacle.

Seen from the outside, there are only small signs of transformation. Once inside the stable, we find an authentic interior with rough surfaces, a space formerly used to house cattle. However, through the space we can see the new addition with a circular entrance. It is a space designed to offer guests a stay filled with comfort and relaxation, something that they will certainly appreciate.

Hotel in the Aurina Valley, Italy with Excellent Views Over the Mountains

By • Nov 1, 2017

This project is located on a hill at 1200 meters above sea level, and extends to the East in the Valley Aurina – Ahrntal, Italy. It has an extensive ground area – 5,300 square meters – and its construction was completed in 2017.

It has six floors in which there are 20 rooms, as well as a spa. The restaurant area has been enlarged. The expansion project has been considered as an “additional expansion” of an existing building, being remodeled only in the areas that such remodeling was necessary. The resulting building retains much of the old structure.

From there, we can enjoy the wonderful views over the green vegetation that covers its mountains that surround the hotel. The interaction of natural materials, such as the black larch that has been used, gives the building an obvious beauty. The characteristic features of the local typology have been used in a contemporary way.

In the bedrooms, we can find wooden floors made from larch that has been taken from the surrounding forest. In addition to the wood cladding used inside the building, clay plaster was also used – all local. This choice and combination of local materials has created a highly welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for its guests.

Or you can opt for an ayurvedic massage (a type of relaxing massage, belonging to a thousand-year-old Indian technique that helps us correct the imbalance of our energies), all the while enjoying, through the glass floor, the wonderful marine fauna of the area. As if this weren’t enough, it can all be followed by a steam bath with Thai herbs and ginger. You’ll have to get me out of the tub!

Tourist Hostel designed by Proyecto Cafeína in the Cty of Puebla in Mexico

By • Oct 17, 2017

HOSTAL TOSEPANKALI is a tourist project located in Cuetzalan, in the northern Sierra of Puebla, Mexico. It is completely surrounded by nature and is perfectly integrated into its surroundings. It was designed by the architectural firm Proyecto Cafeína in 2014, and has a total area of 335 square meters.

The hostel consists of eight rooms, a common covered area and a campfire area, all rooms have private bathroom as well as a locker room.

Its exterior design stands out for the undulating shape that has been given to its roof, creating a kind of spiraling structure that runs through all the spaces and ending on both sides in peaks that seem to fall yielded on the ground.

Inside, the high ceiling gives us the feeling of a bigger space than it really is, with beautiful rustic decoration, that we can appreciate in the walls of stone and bamboo beams that rise to the ceiling and cross it. The furniture follows the same line, with small seats made in bamboo that remind us at every moment where we are.

The rooms, with beds—also with bamboo frames—placed one on top of another, present us with a wonderful option we have for resting in this pleasant and quiet place.
