It hardly sounds the things that dream holidays are made from, but this proposal by Aristide Antonas and Katerina Koutsogianni would certainly provide a complete escape from every day life.
Located in and around hospitable beaches or arid hills near the sea, each room is an independent cell that can be raised or lowered using a mechanical arm attached to a concrete foundation.
Each room not only has stunning views, but the interior would be cosy and practical, featuring a bed, a home cinema, a small office, a wardrobe and a shower together with modern conveniences such as an internet connection and large screen TV.
A common underground kitchen serves the needs of all the complex; a reverse osmosis desalination plant provides drinkable water to the invisible kitchen and to the units.
Ok, so maybe it’s a little far out and hard to imagine sending postcards after 3 weeks inside the cell, but the practical and functional cell’s would allow for some quite magnificent exploration in the local area!
