Parisian Cityscape Carved in Ice for One of a Kind Hotel Room

Luc Voisin and Mathieu Brison of Paris-based Les Ateliers de Germaine designed this one of a kind room for Icehotel to represent “a postcard from France.” Specifically, the room is based on the Montmartre neighborhood, one of Paris' most famous and recognizable areas.

At the head of the bed, the two artists carved a series of rooftops with illuminated dormer windows and thick chimney pots. On the opposite wall, the outline of the Sacr-Cur basilica can be seen on the Montmarte hill amongst a skyline of pure white rooftops.

Located 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle in Jukkasjrvi, Sweden, Icehotel is the largest hotel made of ice and snow in the world. Every year it is rebuilt anew and artists are invited to create a unique themed room. Open for the next four months, this would certainly make for a unique vacation if you can handle spending the night in sub-zero temperatures.
