Beautiful or terrifying? Architect designs hotel suspended over a cliff


    Norway’s spectacular fjords make a dramatic backdrop for any building, and now a Turkish architectural design studio has proposed a boutique hotel built into one of the nation’s famous cliffs.

    The concept would be built to look like part of Preikestolen, a 1,982-foot cliff in southern Norway that has become a popular tourist attraction.

    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.

    The concept was dreamed up by Hayri Atak, an architectural design studio based in Istanbul.

    But don’t rush to book your room yet — there’s been no word on whether the hotel will ever be built.
