The incredible building you will see in the images below is a hotel perched 8,300 ft above sea level, on the top of Foronon Buinz Mountain, in the Italian Julian Alps. Everyone who can make it up there is welcome. Yes, you read that correctly, these stunning panoramic views over the Italian Alps can be enjoyed for free from within this hotel. Of course, the trick to taking advantage of the hosts’ generous hospitality is to be able to climb the mountain first.
The hotel is built as a tribute to Luca Vuerich — a climber who died in an avalanche while scaling a waterfall — and it is so high up the mountain that the building materials had to be taken there by helicopter. Made of wood and steel, the tent-shaped shelter can accommodate nine beds.
A group of 12 people, including Vuerich’s family and friends, fixed the 30 panels that make up the building together in only a day. Architect Giovanni Pescamosca, from Udine, Italy, who designed the hotel, said:
From the day of the inauguration, the building has become a destination for mountain lovers. During the harsh winter and the summer it’s as a safe place with a breath-taking view over rocks immersed in the silence of nature.
It’s an awesome tribute to the fallen climber and a great place to spend a night in.
