The Red Mountain Resort Invites Guests On an Inward Journey [Iceland]

A design project of Johannes Torpe Studios, the Red Mountain Resort will be situated on the Snæfellsness peninsula, near a majestic glacier-covered stratovolcano and is surrounded by caves, craters, and lava fields. The resort consist of 150 rooms, 20 distinct bungalows, a center for creative industries including housing and an installation space for artists-in-residence, a spa and wellness center – the resort was designed with a focus on the wellness of the body and spirit.

Inspired by local nature, history, and mythology, Johannes Torpe wanted to create another reality hidden within the Icelandic landscape. Once a guest enters this illusive world, his senses become awakened by the power of nature that is always seen, sensed and present inside the resort.
