WOULD YOU SPEND AN EVENING HERE ON THE EDGE OF THE WORLD?
Istanbul-based architecture practice Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio has unveiled this gravity defying boutique hotel suspended from Norway's Preikestolen cliff.
Titled Cliff Concept Boutique Hotel the hotel looks to be built into the natural part of the rock on a site 600-metres-high on Preikestolen – a steep cliff and popular tourist spot in the west of Norway that overhangs the Lysefjorden fjord.
Consisting of five levels - the ground level houses the hotel's entrance as well as a large viewing platform with a further three levels below housing the nine suites which offer arched floating balconies. The final level, an elevated deck area house's a glass-boxed swimming pool providing guests with a feeling of flying in the air when swimming.
Hayri Atak’s claim the hotel has been designed for those who love of the idea of living "on the edge."
Sadly there are no plans to bring this concept to reality at the moment.
