The town of Kirkenes, in Northern Norway lies at the intersection of many cultures; here the Sami, Russians, Norwegians and Finns, that is, the Kvens, have long interacted with one another. The borders of the region have changed and formed barriers to many connections. While they appear not to follow any logic, however, sufficient distance from political hubs has allowed the existence of sympathetic, informal grassroots-level interaction centring on everyday life in the Barents Area.

The name of the hotel “Change Vacation Hotel” came from a poem of Tao Yuan-Ming, who was a poet in Song Dynasty. «Ah, homeward bound I go! »: “The farmers will come and tell me that spring is here and there will be work to do at the western farm.”
Tao Yuan-Ming’s idyllic life with freedom and no worries is the client’s original intention to establish this hotel. The client wants to create an inn where they can talk and drink with the guests from different places.

The design concept of the hotel was inspired by the hexagonal diamond element in the building facade. Through the analysis of the formation of diamond, which is made from constantly refining of rough stone; the design adopted the cutting and luster characteristics of diamond to shape the space. This concept is throughout the architectural plan layout and every elevation detail. Each detail is a story; a stylish and avant-garde space scene is created by the atmosphere of lighting, stylish furniture and exquisite artworks.

The Project consists of a reform of a traditional hotel in the historical center of Paraty with relevant limitations to preserve the Historic and Cultural Patrimony and replacing the stigma of the previous development with a thematic hostel (with a differentiated atmosphere that continues to characterize the actual way of living e local hospitality). Given these circumstances we were inspired to create a cozy atmosphere using few materials that unite the environments for visual continuity, and that at the same time provides privacy for the guests. The Pousada Literária is the oficial hostel for Paraty International Literary Festival – FLIP.
