Trevarefabrikken is located within the Lofoten archipelago – a remote cluster of islands that boasts some of the most dramatic scenery in northern Europe, from mountain peaks to deep fjords and wild, windswept beaches and dazzling Northern Lights displays. The former factory and carpentry workshop is a key part of Henningsvaer’s maritime and industrial history but was abandoned for a decade before its current revival as a hotel and community space.
Jonathan Tuckey Design led the building’s adaptive reuse, retaining much of its existing architecture and some of the decaying machinery inside the space. The studio took a pared-back approach to the interiors, allowing the surrounding rocky landscape and sea views to take centre stage. Rooms are painted pale green and feature wooden shelves and shutters or yellow curtains that open to reveal the water outside.
Many of them still have the wood-marked concrete walls from the building’s construction, and in one room, the goods lift has become an extremely snug sleeping nook.
Guests can join yoga classes, enjoy a sauna session or explore Trevarefabrikken’s on-site cafe, restaurant and pizzeria, with rooms starting at around £110 per night.
