Hotel Full Moon concept for Azerbaijan
Korean firm Heerim Architects have conceptualized the Full Moon Bay and Caspian Plus that includes Crescent Place on neighboring peninsulas in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku that look on to the Caspian Sea. Both the projects are for the opposite extremes of the same bay acting as gateway markers. Hotel Full Moon features a disc with rounded edges and a hole in one of the top corners that appears drastically different to the view depending on the angle it is seen from. The main building will be a 35-story luxury hotel with 104,182 square meters of space for only 382 rooms.
Complimenting the Hotel Full Moon on the opposite-end is Hotel Crescent, part of the Caspian Plus redevelopment that stands as a curving arch similar to a crescent moon. At 32 floors tall it will also be a luxury hotel, this time with 221 rooms. There will also be 128 serviced apartments in the building.
