‘Cliff hotel’ design concept for Norway on the edge

A Turkish architectural firm has proposed a hotel built into a Norwegian cliff featuring a swimming pool with views below.

Turkish design studio Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio has released its proposal for the Cliff Concept Boutique Hotel in southern Norway, to be situated atop a 1,982-foot cliff.

It features a large viewing platform on the top deck that doubles as the entrance to the building, with three floors of guest quarters below.

Each level has a protruding balcony that provides stunning views over the surrounding landscape.

On the lowest level, a long, narrow swimming pool juts out from the cliff face, with a viewing deck that provides a place for guests to relax.
