Inspired in a precious gemstone, the dutch practice NL Architects has designed a chain of hotels proposal that will blow you away.
With the purpose of promoting the so called magical healing qualities of an amethyst ( a precious stone consisting of a violet variety of quartz) the building tries to reveal the stone natural forms by appearing slice in half.
Internally, the hotel’s accommodation is placed around a large void, with access to each room organized along the outer perimeter.
The inner layer is then formed by crystalline clusters that organically frame the interiors. The first amethyst hotel is planned for ocean flower in china, a man-made island currently under development in the sea north of hainan. Over time is it imagined that a chain of such designs will be constructed in different locations around the world.
