Hotel Bjornson

The company behind the Ark-Shelter was asked to design a cluster of forest cabins built on stilts for Hotel Bjornson. Located in Demanovska Valley, a forested region in the Low Tatras mountain range in central Slovakia, and nestled amongst tall spruce trees, right next to a ski slope, the minimalist retreat features several timber cabins that consist of two independent modules (can also be united courtesy of their sliding wall partitions), each with a spacious living and sleeping room with expansive views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, children’s room, entry hall, and a bathroom. The project also includes a restaurant, plus a cluster of saunas and relaxation rooms with a masseur. A magical place to escape the stressful city life, and reconnect with nature.
