Judges Statement:
Anyone who has ever been to Iceland knows that it’s a magical place: a land of myth and legend, an island where hot springs meet glaciers and
where the Northern Lights light up the sky. The surroundings set a high bar, and so does the lush green site where Ion Luxury and Adventure Hotel sits. Nestled into the
slopes of Mount Hengill, near Thingvellir national park, the hotel is perched on high pillars like an enormous basalt post pile, its black, lava-like exterior merging from the
mountainside. Found wood is used throughout the hotel’s interiors, as are recycled materials (sinks, for example, are made of recycled rubber). Huge windows ensure that
natural light abounds and that interiors merge with exteriors. The judges awarded Ion Luxury and Adventure a grand award for meeting the challenge of merging with its
magnificent site and offering an experience that’s equally wondrous.
