Another 7 star hotel in Dubai?

Hotel designed by Sybarite Architects would feature a two-storey jungle at the top of the 28-storey building.

Developers are said to be hovering over this unique 7-star hotel in Dubai designed by Sybarite Architects after a major hotel group showed interest in putting up the funds.

The US$350m (£173m) 28-floor Aperiron building would be 300m from the Dubai coast and accessible only by boat or helicopter.
As well as 438 luxury suites, it would contain a spa, an art gallery, and an underwater restaurant with views into a surrounding lagoon.

To top it off, the top two floors would house a temperature-controlled butterfly jungle with tropical species.

Its unique structural design has not yet garnered a nickname, but Building staff have variously named it ‘The Rollmop’, ‘The Pringle’ and ‘The Funnel’. Any better suggestions should be posted below.

Imagine a funnel-shaped, 7-star hotel 300m off Dubai’s coast, accessible only by boat or helicopter, complete with temperature-controlled butterfly jungle on the top two floors…

Sounds more like fantasy than reality, huh? Apparently, such a hotel could be on the cards, though. The 28-floor Aperiron building has been designed by Sybarite Architects and is said to have a major hotel group interested in putting up the funds to make it all happen.
