Overview

The Ion Hotel emerges from the moss covered mountain base like an enormous post pile wrapped in a sheath of hardened lava.

The vision for the Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel was truly holistic, requiring a design that reflects the natural beauty of the region with clarity and simplicity, in a manner that is environmentally considerate. Our approach was to create a hotel experience as dramatic and otherworldly as the natural Icelandic surroundings, where the built and natural environments can coexist, integrate, even synergize.

The hotel incorporates innovative materials, sustainable practices, and the natural features of Iceland into its design.
