MINARC DESIGN STUDIO

Ion's austere past as an inn for workers at the Nesjavellir Geothermal Power Plant served as canvas for it’s future as a chic bolthole. The abandoned building was acquired in 2011 and — with the assistance of Santa Monica-based design studio Minarc — renovated, with a new wing also added.

The new elements of the structure were built using a prefabricated panelized building system, which exceeds environmentally safe building standards. The hotel’s position atop a series of pillars dramatically juts out of the slopes of Mount Hengill.

 

Fairtrade organic linens and wooden flooring are found in all accommodations, where the sustainable ethos of the hotel is also realized via water-saving shower systems, and beds and chairs made from recycled materials.

A SECLUDED RETREAT

Innovative materials, sustainable practices and natural features: these are the hallmarks of design at Ion. Bolstering the hotel’s mood of a secluded retreat are driftwood and other natural materials, from the surrounding area.
