Stunning Mountaintop Eco-hotel: LEAPrus 3912

If you’re tired of conventional hotel rooms and the overcrowded cityscapes, well we have the perfect thing for you! This stunning mountaintop eco-hotel.

Located high atop Russia’s Mount Elbrus, at a  dizzying height of 13,123 feet is the eco-hotel LEAPrus 3912.

This stunning complex consists of pre-fabricated resin and fibreglass tubes that were airlifted via helicopter onto the site. Far from being a scenic wooden Alpine cottage, the hotel actually looks more like a space station.

The interiors are long corridor-shaped communal spaces lined with bunk beds. The third tube houses the restaurant and the bathrooms are located in a fourth block.

The Italian architectural firm LEAPfactory are the masterminds behind this masterpiece and designed the space to be as energy-efficient as possible.

The new station accommodation is structured with four completely prefabricated buildings and because the modular structures were first designed and manufactured in Italy they were transported by helicopter to the slopes of Mt. Elbrus.

The mountain hotel has 49 beds and a restaurant, and the energy supply to the entire property comes from a stand-alone hybrid system to keep to the company’s ecological standards.
