How annoying is it to get to a hotel and find that you're facing land instead having an ocean view? At the Šolta Island Resort that won't be an issue, because it rotates to give everyone a nice sight.

Designed by Richard Hywel Evans of Studio RHE, rooms in Šolta Island face the Adriatic, at times:

The 3 story building is a 61 meter diameter very slow moving continuous turntable rotating 1.3 times per day, and will be built of steel in sections at the huge Split shipyards which are directly opposite the Island. The building is entered from below at Lower Ground Level which does not rotate with the 22 meter diameter center hub of the building which is also static containing the Reception, circulation stairs and lifts.


I'm still trying to sort out how everything turns based on the concept photos, but I don't really care about the details if there's sunshine and a beach nearby. [WAN]
