Sedona planners will get a look at a proposed ‘Landscape Hotel’ that would be the first of its kind in the U.S.
Sedona’s Planning and Zoning Commission will hear about plans for Ambient: A Landscape Hotel at its Tuesday meeting.
The unique hotel concept seeks to meld designs and rooms with surrounding nature. It is modeled after the Vivood Landscape Hotel in Spain.
There are also immersive landscape hotels in Norway, Chile and Iceland. They aim for eco-tourists.
The Sedona plans call for 40 individual guest atrium structures to be built via elevated steel piers that allow for structure to be enveloped by surrounding tree and vegetation. The goal is to immerse guests into nature.
Each building will be 576 square feet and will have bronzed glass exteriors to reflect trees and the surrounding nature.
Development firm Adobe Jack LLC is proposing the unique hotel. Plans also call for on-site workforce housing and once on-site guest will explore the property and surrounding area on foot or via bikes or electric micro vehicles.
The developer also plans on commissioning metallic sculptures into the 3.1-acre property.
