capturing the spirit of the ‘icehotel’, swedish-based designers alessandro falca of conte di san pietro and annasofia mååg have constructed a ‘secret garden’ in its main hall. the world’s largest frozen accommodation is located in jukkasjärvi, a small village in northern sweden. each year different rooms are carved from ice, creating a magical world of white. following a saying found in the tool shed, ‘you must believe in what does not exist, for what exists now, hasn’t always been there either’, the duo was influenced to build a wishing well and unicorn in its center. the room features intricately carved sculptures with ornamental details that evoke an icy-cold, mystical fantasy land.
