The Cliff_hanger Hotel designed by (arsitek) is located in Grand Canyon, United States. Responding to a call by the John Hardy Group and the Hospitality Design Group, for Radical Innovation in Hospitality, Cliff_hanger Hotel is the ultimate hotel experience based on the concept of suspension in space and immersion in environment. With its modular design, the experience can be recreated in many locations across the world.
Each hotel will follow the same principles of suspension and immersion, with emphasis on minimising the ecological footprint on the site. The idea is threefold; get in quickly and efficiently, enjoy the location, then remove all traces of the hotel and human impact as one leaves.
Guests of Cliff_hanger Grand Canyon West Rim arrive by car or helicopter atop the cliff. Entering the organic pathway offering a framed window to the Grand Canyon, guests will be directed to a state-of-the-art elevator that will transport them down to a dramatic 4-storey glass lobby–the pinnacle of the hanging structure–overlooking the Grand Canyon below.
