Gallery: AirHotel: 6 High-Flying Hotel Rooms Made of Recycled Materials...

We've seen some really cool places to spend a night, but the high-flying AirHotel by Time Circus is one of the most unique. The designers, a collective of artists keen on jarring people out of the ordinariness of everyday existence, collaborated with Mam'mout and Terra Nova to create these six hanging hotel rooms made out of recycled materials. Each room has its own theme and occupancy load, and the spaces are suspended at different heights up to six meters off the ground. A solar-powered wellness center accompanies the mobile hotel along with all the necessary electricity and sanitary facilities, and a healthy breakfast of fruit and yogurt is provided each morning.


This hanging metal structure looks like an oversized bucket or carriage. It is attached to a tree trunk by clamping and tensioning and has a translucent roof opening. Suspended a full six meters off the ground, the Sterreschijter can accommodate up to two people.

Love Nest

The Love Nest actually looks like a giant bird’s nest. Made of basic metal and clad in wood, this little room suspended four meters off the ground is reached by a ladder and features a portal window that permits natural light. The interior is lined with a light-colored faux leather.

The Lotus

Possibly one of the most unique of all, the Lotus looks like a giant ball or lantern but then it folds out like a flower. Suspended at four different points, making it perfectly secure, this room seems to float four meters above the ground. Remarkably, this room comfortably accommodates up to four people.
