Propeller Island City Lodge

Berlin’s Propeller Island City Lodge may be the most bizarre example of the artist-designed hotel trend. Each of the 30 rooms is radically different in its decor, its theme, and its presuppositions, and each may delight or appall you with its quirks. This innovative and unique hotel made up of 30 themed rooms is the brilliant work of German artist Lars Stroschen from the Distorted Room, where the floor steeply slopes and nothing is quite right to the Dwarves Room, only 1.4 m high and full of small woodland people, from the Forest room, where your mattress floats on a series of logs surrounded by red walls through to the Gruft room, where your two separate beds are white coffins.

The Gruft room – In both coffins you can even slumber beneath closed lids! An will be opening soon: exclusively connoisseur room for all those “Nosferatus” who cannot wait for that which awaits us all. Whoever has second thoughts can creep to the bed place below, safe within the labyrinth. Not only a unique experience for Gothic die-hards…an exquisite location on top of that! The Upside Room has all the furnishings on the ceiling and you sleep in boxes under the floorboards.

The most popular and lavish room is Propeller Island’s version of the standard presidential suite. It’s hard not think dirty thoughts about this, the largest room, which houses two cages that are set upon two five-foot-high stilts. Sleeping in a cage. Dual cages, situated in the centre of this spacious menagerie, rest on stilts measuring 1.5 meters tall and await applause from the neighbouring guest.

Cape Schnack House

The Cape Schanck House,Melbourne is situated near rugged coastline subject to strong prevailing winds and sits within an expanse of native tea trees. The flows through the site inform the linear site nature of the east and west decks that extend into the landscape. The pattering of the pavers was based on the nearby rock platform, where fast-cooling lava forms into sequential patterns of pentagons and hexagons.
The central element of the internal space – the large bulb-shaped tank – contributes to the environmental performance of the house in two ways: it collects and stores rain water harvested from the entire roof surface, while the 6mm mild steel tank walls keep the water at a temperature close to 21?C, ambiently cooling the house interior.

Everything is dramatic about the EV hotel.They are simply styled in sharp white, and each one has a balcony, towelling sofa, plasma TV, CD player and adjustable mood lighting. The fully equipped kitchens boast Smeg appliances and the bathrooms include Jacuzzis. This hotel was built for relaxation, and even those who tire of lazing in the sun on the towelling day beds need not get bored, as there are eight outdoor pools, a spa and fitness centre. Staff will create a tailored ‘personal wellness program of rejuvenation and replenishment’ for each guest.

Turkey’s elite have long flocked to the southern Aegean resort town of Bodrum for its calm azure seas (great for snorkeling and sailing) and its proximity to Lycian, Roman, and Ottoman ruins. The area’s latest addition is EV Türkbükü, a hilltop hotel designed by Turkish architect Eren Talu. It’s not hard to stay under the radar here: with 48 rooms and eight heated pools (you do the math), your privacy is guaranteed whether you take a dip outside or in the whirlpool in your ultramod, white-on-white room. Plasma-screen televisions and 24-hour butler service will please the most reclusive of travelers—true lovers of seclusion may even choose to skip the hotel’s restaurant and whip up dinner in their own fully equipped gourmet kitchen. But if you’re ready to emerge once the sun sets, head down the hill for Bodrum’s renowned hedonistic pursuits: the bars and clubs here stay open till dawn.
The EV opened two years ago, the latest of Turkbuku’s growing crop of boutique crash pads aimed at the globe-trotting elite. It includes Maca Kizi, which is owned by Sahir Erozan, a habitué of Washington high society who was behind such trendy restaurants in the capital as Cities and Leftbank, and which offers its own tranquil private beach club.
