A new resort being built in Peru's capital, Lima, is a real cliff-hanger.
A group of Spanish architects have dreamed up an incredible cliff-hugging structure that is being dubbed the “Unbalanced Hotel.”
Designed to look like an off-center picture frame, the hotel was designed for a private client by Madrid-based architecture firm “OOIIO.”
With 125 rooms, restaurants, conference rooms and exhibition spaces, the Unbalanced Hotel is intended to become a landmark for Peru's capital.
Being built on the seaside cliffs just outside the Miraflores district, the unusual design was created to not block the stunning view.
If it was constructed in a traditional way, the hotel “would be a visual barrier… that could block the ocean view,” the OOIIO website states in a report by the Daily Mail.
“Thanks to [the hotel's] peculiar shape, the landscape is now even more relevant — we have framed it!”
As of now, the city has yet to approve the plans for the hotel.
However, if approved, the firm president said the hotel will achieve “an extra profitability due to the surprising, interesting and original design.”
