Another day, another mind-blowing building from Oslo architects Snøhetta. The firm last week unveiled the first images of the Lofoten Opera Hotel, which will snake over a rocky outcrop on the far-west of Norway's Lototen islands.
The hotel will loop around an inner courtyard, offer views of the Norwegian Sea in several directions, while providing sheltered space in its centre. 
 
"The location is spectacular; sunny, right in the middle of majestic landscape elements, but at the same time connected to already populated areas and shielded harbours," the company said on its website. 
 
"The form creates an inner and outer space, and enhances the site’s inherent potential of an architectural expression," it added. "The organic form protects and opens at the same time."
 
The 11,000 square-metre building will house several hotels and apartment complexes, spa facilities, seawater basins, hiking resources and an amphitheatre.
 
It is expected to cost as much as 400m kroner ($66m) to build, with work expected to start later this year. 
 
The complex is designed to cater to extremely wealthy tourists who have increasingly been choosing to holiday in Norway.
