The 2022 FIFA World Cup is fast approaching, and with it, a legion of fans who are primed and poised to saturate the sand-strewn roadways of Qatar. To accommodate the large influx of fans heading into the city for soccer’s biggest day, Finland’s Admares has been contracted to create an innovative but sustainable suite of hotels; a task that they’ve taken to even greater lengths thanks to the abnormal use of buoyancy.
To ensure that FIFA’s international fanbase will have additional accommodation for the 2022 World Cup, Admares has proposed 16 floating structures be placed off of Qetaifan Island North, a waterway situated on the beach of the Persian Gulf. Each four-story building will boast an expansive residency area, allowing for up to 101 individual rooms to be booked. At 236-feet long and 52-feet wide, this might seem like a tremendous feat, but what makes the construction even more interesting is the fact that each hotel will also boast its own lounge area, bar, and restaurant, allowing fans to partake in Qatar’s finest food, drink, and social pursuits. The best part? Admares’ Floating Hotels won’t be torn down after the FIFA World Cup has concluded, allowing them to be reutilized in a separate location, and for a different purpose.
