Introducing the ......Birding Hotel

HereÔÇÖs a project by Morris Architects that was a runner up in a 2009 hospitality design competition called “Radical Innovation,” looking for new creative ideas for hotels.  With little criteria defined in the competition brief, the project calls for the opposite of a branded, cookie-cutter hotel solution to be applied anywhere; but rather one that relies heavily on context and environment - largely because it is so program driven, requiring special responses to the habitats of local birds.  Their response created two prototypes, one in Alaska; the other in Costa Rica, covering the two extremes of climate found in birding, cold, and dry; and hot, and humid.
While IÔÇÖm not convinced there is really such a thing as “birding honeymoons,” or “birding family holidays,” (see project description below); the architecture itself is seductive, and appears to contain enough other program and amenities, that such a venture could succeed as a boutique hotel attracting anyone, not just bird enthusiasts, purely for the amazing scenery.
