Brilliant Floating Hotel Allows Guests to Explore the Adriatic Sea in Luxury
Posted By Helen Morgan On July 6, 2011 @ 3:40 pm In Architecture | 1 Comment
Set to float above the Adriatic sea and past its throngs of islands and coves, Ivan Filipovic’s adventurous project presents a thrilling floating hotel concept ready to explore the water world. Based on ideas of "Navigating Architecture", the sophisticated floating hotel is a beautiful response to its idyllic surroundings via a navigable boat-hotel, or “botel”. Each botel provides a means for visiting and delving into remote areas of the waters, but without the sacrifice of modern creature comforts in the pursuit.
The central structure of the botel is surrounded by independent sleeping modules, each with the possibility of being detached from the main hub. Equipped with photovoltaic solar energy  devices that accumulate and use the energy to move, the units also come with advanced technologies such as a GPS system.
The entrance lobby, restaurant and bar are all surrounded by a covered outdoor deck — a simultaneous passage to the sleeping modules. A roof deck comes complete with a terrace and swimming pool to add to the luxury of the conceptual projects .
In addition to convenient detachable bedroom areas, the modular structure consists of all the usual amenities of a hotel, but can be transported to different destinations. Combining a sleek and elegant design with the spirit of adventure we couldn’t think of a better place to kick back, relax, or for the adventurous, break boundaries!
