Oostkamp, Belgio: Juvet Landscape Hotel by Jensen & Skodvin

Minimalist architecture and enchanting landscape, of the neighborhoods near the magnificent fjords, waiting for you at “Juvet Landscape Hotel”, designed by the architectural firm of Jensen and Skodvin Arkitektkontor (JSA).

The architects Jensen and Skodvin aimed to create a landscape hotel that blended in with the terrain. the result is seven small "cubes" on stilts, with great panoramic windows.

You can almost feel the trees brushing against you, and the snow-white drops of spray from the river Valldøla on your face.

The landscape is so varied that none of the rooms are alike, and each room has its own individual view. Outside the landscape is constantly changing – according to the weather, the time of day and season.
