Having finished the construction of the latest addition to the Bodø skyline last year, the Scandic Havet Hotel, Bodø-based architecture firm BOARCH Architects has been influencing the city since 1971 – and has won several awards in the process. Based next to Bodø harbour, the hotel is a monumental 18-storey tower with a facade consisting of glass and aluminium, towering across the city to provide a spectacular panoramic view with the city on one side and the North Sea on the other. Furthermore, the bar and restaurant on the 17th floor provides a sublime spot with a stunning view from all angles, adding a picturesque environment to the dining and drinking experience.
