Hong Kong Red Light Hotel

Urban Plunger

The building’s elevation allows for an open, green space to exist in what would have been the tower’s footprint. Elevator shafts hang suspended from the underbelly, acting as the primary access point for the public to the amenities located within. The construct is laid out in three sectors. The namesake night clubs, of which there would be several, are planned for the lower portion of the suspended form. Above these one finds a business center and restaurant, as well as retail spaces and a spa complete with semi-olympic sized pool. Here too are the lobby and security access for the hotel above. The floors taper inwards at the hotel levels, creating the circumstances for balconies off of the single and double rooms. These balconies transform into terraces for the suites and taken one step further- aerial villas and presidential suite at the pinnacle.
