The first amethyst hotel is planned for a man-made island, currently under development in China.
Dutch practice NL architects has developed a proposal for a chain of hotels, with a design that takes its form from that of a precious gemstone. Intended to promote the supposed healing qualities of an amethyst – a precious stone consisting of a violet variety of quartz – the building appears sliced in half, revealing the seemingly natural forms inside.
Internally, the hotel’s accommodation is placed around a large void, with access to each room organized along the outer perimeter. The inner layer is then formed by crystalline clusters that organically frame the interiors. The first Amethyst Hotel is planned for Ocean Flower in China, a man-made island currently under development in the sea north of Hainan. Over time is it imagined that a chain of such designs will be constructed in different locations around the world.
