* Architecture: Shelf Hotel by 3Gatti Architecture Studio

Posted by the editors on Friday, 11 May 2012

Architecture: Shelf Hotel by 3Gatti Architecture Studio: “..Rather than design a run-of-the-mill skyscraper for a new hotel in Xian, China, architects 3Gatti decided to put lots of smaller buildings on a gigantic set of shelves..Houses and apartment blocks on the lower levels of the Shelf Hotel will contain hotel suites..Office blocks will be placed nearer the top..Two shelves will be omitted from the lower part of the tower, creating an elevated garden including a courtyard surrounded by restaurants..”  Atypical mixed-use tower, with personality..
