hayri atak envisions a boutique hotel suspended over a cliff edge in norway

for the design studio’s latest project, hayri atak proposes to construct a boutique hotel sitting precariously on the edge of norway‘s preikestolen cliff.  the idea sees the hotel built into the side of the rock, appearing almost as an extension of the cliff itself. characterized by the series of balconies that delicately cantilever over the precipice, the concept envisions a unique hotel experience, providing guests with impressive views of the natural landscape of norway.

on the top level of the hotel, a large viewing platform is designed by hayri atak to greet guests into the entrance of the building. on the three floors below, guest accommodation can be found, including curved balconies that protrude out from the edge of the cliff, offering panoramic views of the surrounding fjords and mountains. on the last deck, a swimming pool provides users with a place for relaxation. the pool itself, long and narrow, stretches out into the distance, creating an uncertain yet thrilling architectural concept.
