Looking like a villain’s lair in a James Bond film, we’re hoping this amazing project gets the green light

Design firm Deep Ocean Technology caused quite a stir last week. Their plans for a hotel that is half submerged in the waters off the coast of Dubai are the most outlandish we’ve ever seen.

The two-disc complex has been dubbed the Water Discus Hotel. With one disc suspended high above the ocean surface, and another submerged deep underwater, the hotel will give a whole new meaning to seeing another side of the world.

Naturally, the hotel is marked to set new standards in luxury, while offering superb diving.

Deep Ocean Technology are also at pains to emphasise the safety measures built into its design. Looking like something from a sci-fi or James Bond film, its designers are keen for it to avoid becoming the star of a disaster film anytime soon.

Dubai has seen some incredible construction projects before. The tallest building on the planet in the Burj Khalifa, and the private islands project The World. We’re not holding our breath on this one becoming a reality, but we really hope it does!
