Renderings from the inside of the hotel are certainly impressive, and offer a glimpse into the sort of lush, expansive, light-filled spaces that guests would inhabit. Though while our first reaction is to be impressed, we're slightly skeptical whether a novelty hotel like this would ever actually get built. After all, regular old, run-of-the-mill, non-apocalypse hotels deal with setbacks all the time, so we can only imagine the kinds of hurdles developers would have to overcome to get one of these
slinky Ark hotels up and running.
As Remistudio's Alexander Remisov said:
"The Ark is an attempt to answer the challenges of our time. Provision is made for an independent life support system.
All the plants are chosen according to compatibility, illumination and efficiency of oxygen producing, and with the aim of creating an attractive and comfort space.
Through the transparent roof there is enough light for plants and for illuminating the inner rooms."
Another challenge of our time? Hotel room lock pickers.
