Ice Hotel – everything ice structure

Posted by editor On June - 12 - 2008

It’s like spending time in a winter wonderland when everything you see around you is made from ice and powder snow. Where? try to visit Ice Hotel in Quebec, Canada or Ice hotel in Jukkasjärvi, SWEDEN .

The Ice Hotel is created anew each year out of 15,000 pounds of snow and 500 pounds of ice. The 34-room hotel features an ice chapel, two art galleries and a host of outdoor activities. The temperature inside the hotel ranges from 23 to 28 degrees Fahrenheit and the beds are carved from ice. Happily, the bathrooms are not the heated facilities are in the adjacent hotel. The hotel is open from January to April, with rates starting at about $175 per night.

Design that conserves space

We ought to be thankful to live in the U.S. because of those extra spaces we have. We even have a big garage to store all of our junk =P (living the American dreams) Imagine people living in small tight spaces like in Japan or some other places, like big cities in Europe, where big space is a rarity. Actually, I wrote this topic because I just received an e-mail from a girl friend of mine with all pictures above as an attachment. She was inspired to create an additional bathroom that conserve space at her home. Now that it’s done, I thought she did a remarkable job. It’s amazing how we can actually utilize and conserving spaces whether through remodeling or new-built extensions to our living spaces, however we never actually take that into our consideration, cuz I think, we all just get too comfortable with all the big spaces we have =).

Having to deal with small spaces aren’t all that bad after all. Actually with a good design you can work it all into a very lovable space. Try to play with colors, materials, and functions. All together will make it worth doing – because I’ve seen it done at my friend’s place.

Thanks to Yuli for all the pictures and tips.
