margot krasojevic‘s heat haze hotel rooms are a design for a private client’ s short stay at a hotel hangar and can be wheeled to different docking locations at an airport. the hotel lounge is an extension of the private jet which allows the passengers to rest for a period of 24 hours before departure, making it unecessary to leave the private airstrip in search of accomodation whilst the plane is refuelled or maintenance checks performed. these types of pop-up hotel rooms cater to early arrivals before departure as well as connecting flights. the scheme is composed of  three telescopic fiberglass polymer clad shells, the exterior contains perspex encased tritium sections that glow and have a ten year life span without the need for an external power supply. the scheme can be dismantled for easier transportation.

the hydropneumatic suspension sections can be moved apart similar to that of an airport passenger jet bridge, they are cantilevered from the main structural steel frame stem which locks the cantilevered hangar roof whilst counterbalancing the lounge rooms, both sections are secured at an angle into this movable structural rig which also acts as an anchor for the scheme. rain water is filtered in order to be used by the hotel room services.
a seamless polished chrome cantillevered canopy displays the jet within a highly reflective environment which can be shuttered off when necessary,  the surfaces are sealed to not only showcase the plane but keep the area clean of rain water contamination making it a self cleaning hangar.

 

a creased rubber section connects all three fibre glass shells which expands and contracts according to the shells movements. the expandable interior sections are lined with a combination of laminated glass , photovoltaic cells and low-resolution led lighting which can be programmed to create any fully immersive environment which either connects you with the existing horizon line and context or completly dislocates you from it. the design concept mimics the heat haze, shimmering effect of high temperatures during takeoff and landing, altering our perception of the immediate environment, the architecture is an extension of the site dynamics using pattern recognition and digital technology to blur the edges between the virtual and actual.  the second stage implements a hot air updraft tower to contribute to sustainable energy and environemental design considerations.
