The igloo, named Snow Space, was designed by Polestar architects and erected by Frozen Innovation, a specialist in the construction of ice blocks. And those who make hotels, palaces and bars using blocks of ice water certainly had no difficulty in establishing a sales center similar to the cube.

Frozen Innovation reports that it took six weeks to build this car igloo in the heart of Rovaniemi, a Finnish town in the middle of the Arctic Circle. This temporary stand has 12 meters high and two meter thick walls, with the construction being done with blocks that were created using 3000 cubic meters of snow taken from the neighboring ski resort. The igloo will be standing, to prevent an unbearable heat wave in the area, until February 23.
