Underground Five-Star Hotel Fit For a Mole KingS

This proposed subterranean London hotel is going to put all 200 guest rooms beneath the surface of a former golf course. Sorry, CHUDs: it's time to gentrify the soil.

The hotel, designed by ReardonSmith Architects, aims to preserve the verdant appeal of its Green Belt location while at the same time offering a full range of luxury spa, hotel, and golf accommodations. If they're able to blend it into the scenery as seamlessly as the spec art indicates, it's going to be a beautifully unobtrusive bit of five-star property. [Inhabitat via io9]
