Nine Quarter City
|Abstract:|| The idea of designing a hotel in Venice was decided due to the fame of this city, so many tourists want to visit this city at least once. Therefore, each unforgettable moment living in a nice hotel is very important. The most interesting feature of my building is the changing direction part. My building has two different parts, one is quite ‘static’ and one is quite ‘dynamic’. With the ‘dynamic’ part, each level of the building has its own direction, consequently, tourists can have many different views from different angles, and if someone did live on the level 1, they would really want to come back and try the room on other levels. Moreover, the changing direction idea also represents the variety of canals in this city. In addition, tourists can easily recognise this hotel due to the shape of the roof. Roof of this hotel includes many triangles pieces of glass combined with steel frame. The breaking down one big roof into many smaller roofs with many different angles provides various and nice views for tourists at night when the dinner is served in a small restaurant on the top floor. Roof top is not only the terrace but also the beautiful place for tourists to have a nice dinner with very beautiful sky with plenty of stars above. Moreover, this hotel has one side facing to the Grand Canal, and this side is one side of the changing direction part as well. The multidirectional part includes levels that jut out directly to the canal; therefore, it provides the floating feeling for tourists living here. The location of this hotel is also nice; one side is canal, other sides are roads, consequently, it is easier to find this hotel in a very beautiful city like Venice. Welcome to Venice Hotel|
