In a small picturesque valley of Flims in Switzerland is conveniently located and hosts world’s first three PodHotel PodHouses. The hotel management is considering a full-extension due to the huge influx of skiing. Until the end of the season all the rooms already booked. Untouched alpine nature of Switzerland retained for centuries. The country’s authorities are trying to continue to protect the landscape and create a universal model for development of tourism with the lowest environmental impact.
The main task to be fulfilled when creating children’s rooms is that the child loved the room, that it was conducted without problems most of the day. It is necessary to create all conditions for playing and socializing, learning and sleeping. When deciding on the walls it is advisable to avoid white as it seems children are too sterile and cold. Recommended ditches or a combination of two or more pastel colors.
The purpose of these mini rooms would be to offer a place to stay between layovers and the event of unexpected delays- saving the time, money and energy needed to book a hotel in these situations. Barcelona company Dream and Fly sent Dezeen the latest renders of their conceptual miniature hotel rooms. They propose that these pods – or bubbles – be placed in airports and train stations.
The pods will come in three sizes depending on your needs: Simply Bubble is is the smallest version and it has no bathroom. A Single Bubble would be the next size up and features an en-suite. The Family Bubble is the largest bubble and includes a cot.
Kids room doesn’t need to be full of toys and mess. They can be neat, playful and colorful, just like pictures below. Colorized in bright colors green, blue, orange pink and purple and neutral combining with gray furniture makes this bedroom interior designed by BM2000 looks lively fresh. I really like those ideas to combine bed, cabinet, shelf and storage together. Such a decent and compact design!
Hotel Full Moon is essentially a disc with rounded edges and a hole in one of the top corners that appears radically different to the view depending on the angle it is seen from. Designed to appear drastically different from different viewing angles – from one angle Death Star and from the other Gherkin – Hotel Full Moon will be a 150 meter-high, 35 story luxury hotel with 382 large rooms. The frontage thanks to the bulging centre makes it appear more like a glass death star whilst the side profile is more than a little gherkinesque. Changing appearance depending on the view is reinforced by the cladding treatment the architect has selected. The front will have a glass diagrid whilst the back will be covered with hexagonal honeycombs. This main building will be a 35 storey luxury hotel with 104,182 square metres of space for only 382 rooms, a relatively small amount of rooms given the sheer size of the internal space on offer. It will reach a maximum height of 158.68 metres.
The hotel is linked via a zoomorphically shaped podium that snakes curvaceously around the boundaries of the site to two residential apartment blocks entitled Palace of Wind 1 and 2. Acting as the counterpoint to Hotel Full Moon is Hotel Crescent, part of the Caspian Plus redevelopment that stands as a curving arch similar to a crescent moon. The arch-like nature of the building is revealed by the fact that the structure isn’t a pure crescent on its inside relying on more regularly shaped columns to help provide it with support. At 32 floors tall it will also be a luxury hotel, this time with 221 rooms. There will also be 128 serviced apartments in the building. Floor space will 128,140 square metres.
Behind it will stand a further four tall buildings, three of which will be residential with the tallest of the quartet being a 43 floor office building standing 203 metres tall. Heerim Architects have not long been established in Azerbaijan. They only opened their office in the country in July 2007 and yet have already secured these two major projects that face transforming the capital of one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

In 2008, UNESCO dubbed China’s Hakka Houses as an official World Heritage Site, noting the historic, cultural and architectural value of these amazing structures. Constructed from the 12th century up through the 20th, these buildings housed up to 800 people each, a city within a city that provided it’s inhabitants with safety, shelter and community. Also known as Fujian Tulou, there are 20,000 of these structures across the Fujian province of China, a large section of coastal China across the sea from Taiwan. The Fujian Tolou are an important part of this province’s history, as these buildings were designed to protect their inhabitants from roaming bandits and warlords. The typical tulou is a three to five story structure comprised of a thick earthen wall with a single entrance that was protected by a 4″ thick solid wooden door and an iron gate. At the roof level, the tulou were dotted with gun holes to ward off attacking intruders.
Aesthetically, these buildings capture the spirit and beauty of rural China. Visually, these structures are decidedly Chinese in nature, with clay tiled roofs, wooden framing, stone walkways and earthen walls. The very small round building has about 12 to 18 rooms, the small ones have 21 to 28 rooms, the medium ones have about 30 to 40 rooms, the large ones have about 42 to 58 rooms, and the super large round buildings have about 60 to 72 rooms.
Two-third of the round building are 3 stories high and hold roughly 20 families or 100 people. The round earth building is a “group-oriented” residence, usually with one main entrance. Its wall is usually around 1 meter thick. The main entrance door is padded with iron sheet and is locked by 2 horizontal wood bars. The wooden bars retract into the walls in order to open the door. In the event the wood bars are sawed through, the locking mechanism is still intact.
Inside the entrance is a huge central courtyard where all the doors of the rooms and inner windows are open to. At the ground level except the hall and the staircases, the rooms are used as kitchens and dining rooms. The rooms on the second floor are used for storage. The rooms on the 3rd level are used as bedrooms. The rooms in each level are identical. In front of each room, there is an open round hallway and usually there are 4 staircases to move from one level to another. A typical room is about 10-13 square meter in size. The larger round earth building has room around 15 square meters. The windows facing outside tends to be small, with the window size at the outer wall smaller and the window size at the inner wall larger enabling wider surveillance from the inside. It is extremely hard for outsiders to come in through the windows. There is usually no window at the ground level.
