Two Seasons Hotel: Up on the Roof


Fuelling an emerging enthusiasm for rooftop spaces (Selfridges, London have just announced plans to create a permanent roof-terrace restaurant while the main attraction at the £4bn Bay Sands hotel, Singapore is the 'Skypark') the Two Seasons hotel in Stavenger, Norway has made the most of theirs with an ambitious, undulating roof – complete with a beautifully mowed lawn.

Created by Belgian/Danish architects Julien de Smedt and Brandsberg-Dahls Arkitekter, the 194-room, six-storey design, which rises above a five-storey underground car park also delivers an unusual degree of mediation: dipping down in areas closer to the more attractive old town and up again when faced with their high-rise neighbours to ensure the view from the top is always stunning.
