Hugging a rugged cliffside, the “Hotel in Alps” will feature a striking glass facade and helipad – and some say it could easily serve as the ultimate villain lair in a James Bond film.
Of course, whether or not you’re a Bond fan, if you suffer from vertigo this true cliff-hanger is probably not the best accommodation option for you.
Still in the concept design phase as the brain child of architect Andrii Rozhko, it will be wedged into the side of an Alpine mountain like a jagged crystal.
Rozhko says the the futuristic design is inspired by the topography of the Alps, although no specific site has been chosen for the project just yet.
He told MailOnline Travel, “It would be great to use a natural mountain crack for an architecture project. I decided to use simple walls and create a facade with the same shape as the mountains, divided by triangles and different heights.”
Inside this daring concept, the hotel will have different private floors, connected with an elevator and with a helipad on top so guests can arrive and depart in style.
He reportedly came up with the “personal cave in a mountain,” known as “Hotel in Alps,” in his signature style, which blends a modern minimalist aesthetic into natural environments.
“I like the connection between high peaks and mountain passes so I tried to design the same shape,” Rozhko explained.
As the Telegraph notes, When, and if, the design ever comes to fruition, “it will join the ranks of some of the world’s most vertigo-inducing clifftop hotels, including the five-star Il San Pietro di Positano, built directly onto the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Positano of the Amalfi Coast, and the Post Ranch Inn of California’s Big Sur coastline, which features a glass-walled bedroom with a deck suspended over a cliff.”
