h2 Hotel - North

This is the design for a new place to stay called h2hotel in Healdsburg, California.  Healdsburg is a small town of something like eleven thousand people.  It’s smack dab in the heart of Sonoma County, a place where wine enthusiasts and travelers go for rest and respite. Environmentalism is quite common in northern California, so its natural that h2hotel would be designed to include a plentiful array of green amenities.  And starting in 2010, transients and guests of all kinds will have the opportunity to stay in one of thirty-six rooms in the four-floor h2hotel.

h2 Hotel Sketch

You’ll, of course, notice the curvaceous green roof and solar panels featured in the renderings.  h2hotel will also feature a bike cube installation and access to Dutch cruising bicycles for guests to tinker around town and take it all in.  Materials used in construction, to a large extent, will be natural and sustainable, and furnishings will be organic.  The hotel project has been registered and LEED certification is planned for the future.  We’ll keep you posted …
