The project is a design for a private client’ s short stay hotel hangar that can be wheeled to different docking locations at an airport. The hotel lounge is an extension of the private jet which enables the clients to rest/ stay for a period of 24 hours before departure.

The scheme is composed of three telescopic fibreglass polymer clad shells, the exterior contains perspex encased tritium sections that glow, these contained radioactive elements are harmless and have a ten year life span without the need for external power supply. The scheme can be dismantled for easier transportation.

The hydropneumatic suspension sections can be moved apart similar to that of an airport passenger jet bridge, they are cantilevered from the main structural steel frame stem which locks the cantilevered hangar roof whilst counterbalancing the lounge rooms, both sections are secured at an angle into this movable structural rig which also acts as an anchor for the scheme. Rain water is filtered in order to be used by the hotel room services.

A seamless polished chrome cantilevered canopy displays the jet within a highly reflective environment which can be shuttered off when necessary, the surfaces are sealed to not only showcase the plane but keep the area clean of rain water contamination making it a self cleaning hangar. A creased rubber section connects all three fibre glass shells which expand and contracts according to the shells movements.

The expandable interior sections are lined with a combination of laminated glass, photovoltaic cells and low-resolution LED Lighting which can be programmed to create any fully immersive environment which either connects you with the existing horizon line and context or completely dislocates you from it.

The design concept mimics the heat haze, shimmering effect of high temperatures during takeoff and landing, altering our perception of the immediate environment, the architecture is an extension of the dynamics of its context, using pattern recognition, digital and radioactive technology to blur the edges between the virtual and actual.

The second stage implements a hot air updraft tower to contribute to sustainable energy and environmental design considerations.
