Cliff-Hanging Swiss Alps Hotel

Dec 8, 2016

Category: Living

If you’re staying at this hotel, you better hope you can curb the fear of heights. Situated above the clouds in the Swiss Alps, this all glass enclosed hotel is both as beautiful as it is frightening. And while it is simply a concept at this point, we do wonder what cliffside views you could photograph while thousands of feet above the ground.

From an architectural standpoint, this project – put together by designer Andrii Rozhko – looks like quite the undertaking as the hotel is positioned inside a man-made crevice in the cliffs undulating surface. The all-glass enclosure also looks to heat up the building quite nicely, while simultaneously adding a bit of secretive James Bond-villainous appeal to the overall design. Nights here don’t appear cheap either, as the only access to this secluded lair is by helicopter thanks to the helipad addition in the design. Will we ever see such a hotel in our lifetime? Probably not, but it does offer some insight into luxurious and secluded lodging options of the future.
