In 2025, they plan to open a new-format hotel in Qatar, which will attract guests with environmental solutions.
The Turkish design team Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio (HAADS) has unveiled the concept of a floating eco-hotel that will operate by generating its own electricity and collecting and reusing rainwater and food waste.
The floating structure will work by using the flow of water and the rotation of wind turbines, converting energy into electricity, writes CNN. The hotel's traffic will be controlled by a computerized control system similar to that used to guide ships. It will take the hotel 24 hours to turn 360 degrees.
The hotel is planned to be located in Qatar, but it can also be moved to any other location with a suitable current for it. You can get to the hotel through a floating pier, which at an angle of 140 degrees can connect the structure to the mainland, by helicopter or boat.
The project area is over 35 thousand square meters. The hotel will have over 150 rooms. It is expected that guests will be able to take advantage of the five-star service: indoor and outdoor pools, a spa complex, a gym and a mini golf course will be provided.
The funnel roof was designed to collect rainwater that will be reused for a variety of purposes, including irrigation. The structure will also be able to handle any used water so that it does not harm the environment.
The HAADS team has been working on the concept since March 2020, bringing in civil engineers and architects. The hotel is planned to be built by 2025. Its cost has not yet been disclosed.
