Our world is filled with hundreds, if not thousands of extremely beautiful and comfortable luxury dwellings … however this striking architectural beauty really lives up to its name, Hotel Unique.

Boasting a bold green curved façade accompanied with an innovative use of colour and geometric shapes; this architectural landmark is definitely one to add to the “must visit” list.

Truly unique in terms of architectural design, the hotel possesses a beautiful dark green façade and many parts of the dark glass reflect the light in a wonderful ways. The formation of the large circular windows offers stunning views of both Ibirapuera Park and the Jardins residential area Sao Paulo.

This is a luxury hotel, so the prices are set accordingly (start saving it’s not cheap) but a visit first hand is surely going to result in a memorable and unforgettable stay – just don’t forget to take your camera.

The Sao Paulo locals have many nicknames for this building … although my favourite description has to be:

“From a distance, the design of the hotel reminds me of a giant turtle lying there graciously on the beach…”

Creative freedom

You’ll definitely notice the effort of the architect to transform traditional hotel design forever through some creating a luxury dwelling both unique in shape and style. Creative freedom is definitely what architect Ruy Ohtake got when he designed this building!

But did he go too far with this design?
