太陽能板相助 瑞典「冰旅館」可全年開放

簡體  |  繁體

瑞典一家以冰塊打造的「冰旅館」(Ice Hotel),往年都是從12月開業到4月,因為當春天來臨時冰塊便會融化。但自今年起,該旅館藉由太陽能板提供的電力來維持低溫,可使冰塊終年不化,故可營業一整年。

這家「冰旅館」位於該國北部小鎮尤卡斯加維(Jukkasjarvi),系藉由托爾訥河(Torne River)的大型冰塊打造。自1989至1990年的冬天以來,該旅館受限於氣溫,每年從只能營業幾個月的時間。

「冰旅館」本年度的營業時間已經開始。除了外觀有些不同之外,該旅館今年開始採用太陽能板來提供電力,以維持冰塊不融化的低溫,從而開啟了全年營業的嶄新紀元。以下是該旅館今年的外觀:

Welcome to join us as we present the numbers in the Icehotel Advent Calendar. Some with looong descriptions some with none – all with great pictures! Nr 1. ICEHOTEL 365 – opening celebration today. Photo @asafkliger Fall asleep in a typographical pun, dance with the clowns in the suite ”Dancers in the dark” or dive into a surreal underwater world at the bottom of the sea. Those are some of the creations that await the guests in the newly opened Icehotel 365. Icehotel 365 is a year-round ice experience in 2,100 square meter with 20 suites, an ice bar that serves champagne and drinks, as well as an ice gallery – all created out of snow and ice. Around 30,000 liters of water from Torne River has transformed into snow and several tons of ice have been harvested from the river to create both parts of Icehotel. To let the ice express ephemeral art is the heart of Icehotel. This year the hotel will offer more art than ever in the history. Over forty artists, designers and architects from nine different countries have created the art in the part of the hotel that will be open year-round and also opened first. Some of them are Icehotel veterans; for example the Norwegian-Italian architect Luca Roncoroni who this year has created an elegant apartment inspired by the Victorian era and for those who worry about freezing during the night, a (hot?) element is placed by the bed. Tjåsa Gusfors and Patrick Dallard are also they back this year and invite you to dance in the suite “Dancers in the dark”. ICEHOTEL on nature’s terms Walls, floors and ceilings are covered with ice and snow and the temperature is minus five degrees Celsius, year-round, in the new building. The refrigerating plant that makes sure Icehotel 365 is cold during the summer is powered by energy from solar panels and since Jukkasjärvi is situated 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, the sun is shining a 100 consecutive days during the summer months. Did you make it all the way? Number 2 will be shorter 😄👍🏻 #icehotel #icehotel365 #icehotelsweden #swedishlapland #seesweden #adventskalender #adventcalendar #withinthecircle #iceflight

「冰旅館」有水泥打造的外牆,但其內牆與室內結構均為冰塊所制。該旅館採用大約6,500平方英尺(604平方公尺)的太陽能板,其生成的電力可供餐廳、辦公室、酒吧、廁所、暖房使用,也可以將冷房的溫度維持在攝氏零下5度至零下8度之間,使冰塊不至於融化。

Soon, real soon, it starts over again. This winter we open already on the 10th of November! #tbt ICEHOTEL 2015. Art Suite: ABJECT BEAUTY Design: Lotta Lampa & Julia Gamborg Nielsen, Sweden. Photo: @fotografpaulina The classically beautiful often becomes dull and predictable – it becomes the expected. In the Abject Beauty suite, Julia Gamborg Nielsen and Lotta Lampa have worked with abstract, organic sculptures to create a sense of unpredictable dynamics, excitement and movement in the room. With their abstract and detailed world, they hope to change people’s ideas of what is considered beautiful: “We wanted to create a world within the world. A world full of patterns and shapes that fill the the room and create a captivating scene.” #design #icedesign #bedroom #icehotel #icehotelsweden

由於該旅館位於北極圈以北124英里(198公里)處,所以日照時間很長,能使太陽能板採集足夠的陽光。該旅館稱,在夏天結束之前,其太陽能板能採集到相當於連續日照100天的陽光。

隨着冬季因為氣候變遷變短,這套供電系統能使該旅館不會因為冰塊融化而被迫越來越早結束營業,反而能維持一整年運作。
