Underground Eco-Friendly Hotel
Currently in the works in Bozen, Italy is the latest eco-friendly, semi-sumerged underground hotel. Designed by architect and designer Matteo Thun, Klima Hotel (Bella Vista) will consist of 11 individual hostels built into the Italian hillside. These spaces utilize economical and ecological methods of heating, cooling and building. The project began in late 2009 and is expected to be up and running some time in 2011.
