Malmbanan (the Iron Ore Line) passes through the site, right on the border between Sweden and Norway. Running between Kiruna and Narvik, this legendary train line has been ferrying iron ore for over one-hundred years. Niehku Mountain Villa is built on the site of the line’s old roundhouse, which operated from 1902 to 1923. The roundhouse’s old semi-circular wall passes through sections of the new building – a fascinating architectural feature and an important part of the site’s history.
The interiors were designed by Stylt, the internationally award winning design agency, which drew inspiration from the old roundhouse in combination with natural materials and colours and local culture and tradition. This idea is echoed in our name, Niehku, the Northern Sami word for “dream”. We think it’s the perfect way to describe a place where dreams about big adventures come true.
