New photographs released by ceramics manufacturer AGROB-BUCHTAL show nature beginning to claim the Oasia Hotel Downtown in Singapore. WOHA Architects’ 30-story scheme was designed to be a “verdant tower of green” in the heart of the city’s financial district.

The tower’s red aluminum mesh cladding has begun to sprout a lush landscaping, consisting of 21 different species of creepers. The colorful flowers and green leaves provide food for birds and insects, while the reaction of the creepers to different light, wind, and shade conditions come together to form a natural mosaic.

The footage also showcases the building’s rooftop tropical bower and series of sky gardens including a swimming pool with sweeping views across Singapore.

Full Steam Ahead: Japanese Capsule Hotel Offers Saunas, Showers & Sleep

[ By SA Rogers in Boutique & Art Hotels & Travel. ]

Pronounced ‘do-shi,’ the °C Sauna + Sleep Ebisu capsule hotel in Tokyo might be light on sleeping space, but it’s heavy on steam, offering intimate enclosed sauna rooms shared with other guests or single sauna stalls with customized temperatures. Inspired by Finnish sauna culture – where access to these sweat-inducing facilities is considered a necessity rather than a luxury – the hotel literally allows you to immerse yourself in the relaxing ritual.

The facility is open 24 hours a day, and there are 162 capsules total (102 for men and 60 for women, with separate saunas.) You don’t even have to stay overnight if you don’t want to – the hotel charges by the hour for both the sauna and the sleeping pods, with a full stay costing just ¥4,500 (about $45.) Once checked in, you head to the sauna and choose your preferred temperature: 20º, 25º or 30º Celsius.

[ By WebUrbanist in Architecture & Houses & Residential. ]

Designed for year-round use in the hot humid summers and icy cold winters of Minnesota’s Twin Cities, the LightHotel represents an innovative and eco-friendly approach to on-demand accommodations.

Moving from site to site, the creators say the “the city itself is its lobby” of this 8-by-20-foot container space. Triple-glazed windows, solar-powered HVAC and hydronic in-floor heating help make it cozy in all seasons. A self-contained water system with a 250-gallon tank supplies a water heater and bio-filter for gray water.

Like a Music Festival, Minus the Dirt: Social Hostel Offers Indoor Camping

[ By SA Rogers in Boutique & Art Hotels & Travel. ]

If you love the sense of community at multi-day outdoor music festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella and Bonnaroo but hate the mud, dust, noise and filthy porta-potties, this hostel was designed just for you. Cao Pu Studio designed ‘Together Hostel’ as an indoor camping experience, with guests staying in translucent individual ‘tents’ under a common roof. The experience emphasizes socializing, with lots of shared interactive spaces, but provides a tad more privacy than the average hostel bunk room.

Converted Crane: 150-Foot-Tall Dutch Hotel Spins in the Wind

[ By WebUrbanist in Boutique & Art Hotels & Travel. ]

a Faralda NDSM Crane Hotel Amsterdam

Featuring three suites toward its peak (and a spa pool to top it off), this boutique hotel is situated in one of the tallest and oldest maritime cranes in the world – and despite the steel frame weighing a whopping 250 tons, it still slowly rotates with the weather.

After three years of rehabilitation, code approval and other obstacles (include the search for a 500-pound bomb left from a previous World War), this remarkable transformation is complete and rooms are now open for rent at the Faralda Crane Hotel.
