Mountain-Inspired Hotel Built From Shipping Containers 2200 Meters Above Sea Level In Georgia

The idea was inspired by the mountains that resemble a triangle, consisting of shipping containers, the hotel “Quadrum” is shaped like a pyramid.

The architect Sandro Ramishvili and Irakli Eristavi are the minds behind this extraordinary creation. Built in a minimalist style, the hotel seems to repeat the local terrain, cascading down the mountainside.

The philosophy behind the project was to safeguard the environment from the harmful effects of work and leisure. While building the hotel not only has the landscape been untouched, but the materials used to build it were environmentally friendly and of local production. Quadrum is the first boutique hotel located in the Upper Gudauri, Republic of Georgia.

As a company responsible for these pictures, we were more than excited to shoot this spectacular hotel up close.

"While building the hotel not only has the landscape been untouched, but the materials used to build it were environmentally friendly and of local production."...with shipping containers? are you kidding me?

I'm guessing other materials used in construction were manufactured or sourced more locally: the wood used for both the interior and the exterior perhaps, or the metal, the tile, the fixtures, or the furnishings. The statement about the landscape being "untouched" certainly isn't accurate; a structure exists where there wasn't one before. I could see calling it "minimal impact," maybe.

How much does it cost to spend time there? I can't find any rates here or on their website. If I could afford their rates, I'd love to visit there.
