HOTELS IN SPACE: GALACTIC SUITES
When the Park Hyatt is not enough, there’s always the Galactic Suite in… space. Alongside a group of engineers from Florida, Barcelona-based architect/designer Xavier Claramunt and his firm EQUIP Xavier Claramunt have designed what is billed at the first prototype od a space hotel. Laboring under the slogan, ”It has to be in the space***, but it has to be a Hotel***”, the hotel takes inspiration from things including, but not limited to, skateboard ramps, eyeballs and, apparently, limpets. The rooms will be 7 meters by 4 meters and will be free of straight lines or angles and have huge windows because, Claramunt says, “the important thing is to float freely while looking outside”. He’s done work for Hospes, Chic&Basic, BMW, Faces (Ferrán Adria), Cosmic and Damm but noteably can’t list NASA as a former client.
