Designer Andrii Rozhko has created a crazy alpine hotel that looks like it’s about to slide off a mountainside. His design, called Hotel in Alps, features a dazzling glass hotel whose facade rises and falls like the mountains surrounding it. The eye-catching hotel is designed to help visitors experience the best of the famous European mountain range.
This isn’t Rozhko’s first concept inspired by Europe’s highest mountain range. His Villa in Alps, to be constructed mainly of aluminum panels, mimicked the lines of the mountains from peaks to passes. Hotel in Alps appears to draw inspiration from the face of the mountain itself. Instead of a flat, smooth facade, the hotel exterior is comprised of glass panels jutting out and meeting in sharp edges, mimicking the stark beauty and angles of uneven mountain crags.
The design for Hotel in Alps features a helicopter landing pad, implying that the exclusive hotel might be reached only via air travel. From there it appears visitors might enter the building at the top, and the rest of the hotel stretches along one side of the mountain. There aren’t any concepts for the hotel interior, but we’d imagine such designs would afford tourists many opportunities to savor the vistas all around their unique lodgings. It’s unclear where exactly in the Alps the hotel would be located.
Hotel in Alps is still a concept, albeit an ambitious one delivering an engineering challenge for an edgy hotel that would pay homage to its encompassing natural beauty. The hotel both integrates almost seamlessly into the mountains and adds a man-made architectural detail accentuating the awe-inspiring peaks of the Alps.
