Finnish Sigge Architects has designed a floating hotel for football fans attending the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The designers say after the tournament it could be towed and relocated off another shore to accommodate spectators at a further large event.
Admares Floating Real Estate is a partner in the project for a five-star facility including restaurants, spa, nightclub and rooftop pool.
The project would not depend on location infrastructure because it would have an independent sewage treatment, power generation and recycling capabilities.
In a statement Admares said: “The floating hotel provides all the same services and amenities that are available in hotels constructed on land while simultaneously offering the additional experience of floating on water and all around access to exceptional views.
“A floating hotel is a viable option for areas where land is scarce, fully developed or challenging to develop.
“It be tailored to meet the exact needs of the operator in terms of the number of rooms, types of restaurants, number and location of pools, placement of balconies and terraces, which can all be altered to suit the purpose.
“The exterior architecture is fully customizable to suit the location’s surroundings. In addition, a parking garage can also be built into the hotel complex, which guarantees available parking to guests even in fully developed city areas.”
