New concept hotel designed to hang over cliff edge in Norway
Not for those with a fear of heights, the proposed Norwegian hotel would be built into the side of the famous Pulpit Rock.
The Istanbul-based architectural design studio Hayri Atak has recently unveiled its concept for a new hotel built directly into the cliffside in Norway. The proposed hotel would be located in Preikestolen – otherwise known as Pulpit Rock – which stands at 604 metres high above the Lysefjord.
The hotel would consist of five levels, the top featuring the hotel’s entrance and viewing platform, where guests can take in the vast landscape surrounding them. Below, three floors would house guest accommodations. Each floor would have its own curving balcony offering spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
While the hotel itself looks stunning, the real star of the show is the infinity pool on the bottom floor that would jut out over the dizzying heights. Extending further out than any of the other doors and, according to Hayri Atak’s renderings, the pool would have translucent sides and floors.
