Onwards and upwards? Not necessarily. In this project we headed below ground level with the project team to work on this 18-storey hotel, with two floors above ground and sixteen floors below ground – two of which are situated below the water level of the lake in this former quarry.
By building the hotel where it is, the developer intends to impact the surrounding environment positively. The design of the hotel reflects the natural landscape of the quarry and the rocky cliff faces, waterfalls and nearby hills. All rooms have a balcony with view of the lake, and the two underwater levels are home to a restaurant, guest rooms, and an aquarium where guests can watch schools of fish swim by.
