InterContinental Shimao: 5 Star Hotel built inside quarry

publicat in: Uncategorized // Publicata pe 05.12.2017

InterContinental Shimao Wonderland is the only hotel in the world built inside an abandoned quarry. The bottom of the quarry will be filled with water, so that 2 from the 19 floors of this impressive building will be practically under water. And this extraordinary idea of a 5 star “skyscraper”, built deep inside the Earth, would not have been possible without architects being able to rely on resistance and durability of natural stone.

The perfect waterfalls for bungee jumping, forests on the roofs, an artificial lake for practicing boat riding, restaurants on the first 2 floors (that is to say underwater), spas, commercial areas, clubs, hiking facilities, an aquarium at 10 m below water level, swimming pool, the newest construction technologies and the best features from the hospitality industry, all these describe this amazing hotel, perhaps unique thank to its perfect method for being incorporated into nature.

The 19 floors will accommodate 370 rooms. Hotel lobby will have an unusual shape, for matching with this unique project: will look like an UFO landing in the quarry. Trees will be planted on the quarry edges and the quarry wall will be left untouched, so that hotel’s future guests can enjoy the amazing show of natural stone.

The roof will be located at 15 m above quarry edge. The integrated park will have a surface of 428.000 sq. m.

This design was nominated for 2009 World Architecture Festival. The concept and façade of building was designed by a group of architects from United Kingdom, having as contractors the Chinese experts.

This imposing hotel built at the base of the Tianmashan Mountain, the Songjiang District in Shanghai, China is supposed to open the doors for public at the beginning of 2018. The estimated price for a room will be 220 EUR.
