Uttwil, Switzerland – 19 September 2013 – An exceptional hotel in the shape of a zeppelin is to be built at the Bodensee. The Swiss architect Fredy Iseli plans the “airship”, that involves Hotel and Leisure Park concurrently. Have a look at the report at HOTELIER TV: www.hoteliertv.net / hotel-construction
The Zeppelin hotel should exactly be as large as the legendary airship LZ 127 (“Graf Zeppelin”), which was built in the 1920s in Friedrichshafen. The building will stand on 30 meters high stilts and will include 500 suites, restaurants, meeting rooms, spa, and a shopping arcade.
The architect estimated the construction cost of around 200 million euros. An investor is still to be found, it is said. For example, the money could come from a shipowner or a shipbuilding company – the Zeppelin Hotel is a kind of stationary cruise ship, Iseli said.
The Zeppelin hotel will be very “green” to the will of the designer. Instead of concrete, Iseli plans to use a new developed building material. This material is one hundred percent specially coated recycled paper and has the form of a honeycomb. Electricity is to be generated with solar panels in the glass.
As location the hotel visionary focused two motorways parking spaces in the communities of Lake Constance and Rorschacherberg Goldach. With the title “Looking for landing” he has proposed to all communities located on Lake Constance, Iseli reported. According to his plan, the start of construction could be within the next five years.
