bell - rica hotel scandic

Rica Hotel Narvik, Northern Norway’s highest building.

The architectural form that towers over 18 floors gives this hotel a wonderful view of the city, the fjord “Ofotfjorden”, the Mountain “Dronningen” and the other surrounding mountains. Rica Hotel Narvik has a stylish interior that takes up the exciting exterior of the 148 luxurious and spacious guest rooms, all-day restaurant, 1-floor sky bar with panoramic terrace on the top floor.

The hotel arranges for business travellers with eight functional meeting rooms, where the largest room has a capacity for up to 175 people.


The interior has a modern look that plays on the natural elements found in Narvik. The client wanted a modern and colourful hotel, which also have a nice and warm atmosphere. This was the brief when the architects started this process. Inspiration is drawn from nature, where you will find the neutral base colour and bright colour accents and wood. A warm light that dresses the hotel’s hall is secured by Bell pendant lamps in many versions. Bell, as for many flush mount ceiling lights, wall sconces,pendant lights of Axolight, is proposed on catalogue in the many versions and colours.


Along with large graphic patterns in vibrant colour combinations in both carpets, wall patterns against the wooden look, Scenario Studio “breaks” up the tight style of the exterior of the building, to create a calm, warm and colourful atmosphere inside. The furniture is mainly modern and clean with bright colour combinations. Comfort, durability and of course the design was essential elements for selection of the furniture.

The Client chose to work with local artists for art & decor, for both rooms and common areas.
