Modern Architecture: Mountain Biker’s Paradise (5 pics)

Proposed by design firm Philip Modest Schambelan + Anton Fromm, Hiding in Triangles is a new hotel for bike enthusiasts that clings to the side of a mountain. Located approximately 500 meters above the northern tip of Lake Garda, Italy, the hotel seeks to attract extreme sports enthusiasts visiting the Alps.

While there are no stairs to get inside, the hotel is accessible on every floor by a series of angled ramps that flow off of the natural curve of the mountainside and into different parts of the hotel.

The hotel hovers 500 meters (.3 miles) over the northern tip of the lake and offers breathtaking views of the water and the surrounding mountains. An all glass faade makes perfect use of sunlight during the day, while the top floor of the hotel holds all of the communal spaces, including a media room, snack bar, and sun-deck.
