Using ice from the Torne River as a source, the 2,100-square-meter structures are built of two layers of walls: an ice wall on the inside and a concrete wall on the outside that is covered by snow and ice. IceHotel employs a natural cooling system with steel pipes dug straight down to the freezing layer 5 meters below earth to keep the temperature at -5 degrees Celsius. The structures will be entirely isolated from their surroundings using this approach, preventing cold air from escaping to the outside and hot air from penetrating into the interior.
