SVART – the worlds first energy positive hotel. SVART will become the world’s first ´energy positive´ hotel. Situated in Norway, north of the Arctic Circle with a 360° view of Svartisen Glacier and arctic nature. It is the first hotel ever designed to the specifications of the ambitious Powerhouse standard. The hotel will reduce yearly energy consumption by 85% compared to other modern hotels, and harvest enough solar energy to cover both hotel operations and the energy needed to construct the building.

We aim to build and develop the hotel of the future through a sustainable approach to design, construction and operation. The project will produce 60% more energy than consumed. This is enough to support surrounding infrastructure.
