MORPHotel A luxury floating hotel

Special Mention
  • Year2012
  • LocationOcean

This project aims to develop a new concept of luxury hotels where guests have the opportunity to stay in a floating building, moving through the world. The MORPHotels through their structure shaped “spine” are able to adapt to the weather conditions and the morphology of the environment in which they operate. This also allows them access to places previously unexplored, helping to develop a new and different tourism.
