    No showers?

    “Feel like taking a community shower anyone, or you could just go wallow in the snow?”

    you can be sure there is a sauna on the premises, and a jump into the snow afterwards, and I would guess plenty of hot water too.

  4. Erin Maree

    It says that every igloo has a bathroom so I imagine it would have a shower/bath, a toliet and a sink. As for a kitchen I would say there would a be restaurant on the premises hopefully with roaring fire and nice couches to sit on an relax.

    The first video shows the restaurant, the second one shows the bathrooms. The bathrooms seemed to be just a toilet & sink although there could have been a small shower in there too. It looks lovely, I’m sure it’d be magical to sleep under the northern lights.

  6. Lilia Smiles

    I think they should’ve made the bathroom just a little bigger (maybe fit in a small shower) and it really shouldn’t be a big problem since the space for the bed seems quite big. But I absolutely love the idea of sleeping under the northern lights! Always wanted to see them!

    The tectonic juxtaposition of the light glass and heavy weight of the snow compounded by the thermally dematerialized enclosure forces me to ponder what level of spatial anxiety such a construct would result in. Of course the “heavy” snow is actually aggregated, light weight flakes and the “lightness” of the glass is, in actuality, a heavy material; so part of the brilliance of this project lies not only in it’s phenomenalogical emotive qualities, but also it’s dynamic play of built forms and materials and their perceptions within nature.

    Kev, I think privacy is pretty obvious, keep your eyes away from your neighbor’s igloo… THAT IS what I call privacy.

  15. Just a thought

    I’d love these if they would be alone in a forest somewhere… But the fact that there’s like fifty of them stacked on top of each other kind of spoils the idea imo :(

  16. Finnish person

    Hi everyone :) I belive that they have public but CLEAN showers in there. And Saunas are a really important part of the finnish traditions! So they have a sauna too :) But if they dont have showers, you can warm up water in the sauna ;) thnx
