Mount Ostberget is clearly distinc, well-known silhouette in the landscape outside the city Östersund in northern Sweden, Breath of Life consist not only of a conference centre but accommodates a new hotel and an opera too.

'According to Gert Wingårdh, the mountain will be enhanced by large teeth shining in every direction.

Placed in the existing ravine on the ridge are a hall and arena with seating for 800 people enjoying concerts and opera. Other parts of the building will involve exhibitions and activities, set on the natural terraces of the mountain. The highest glass peak is a hotel with 240 rooms and 50 luxurious apartments providing a view of the country for miles.'
