Travel has become an integral part of modern life. Being far from home does not need to be a barrier to travelers feeling at home in a foreign environment; as a matter of fact hotels have become the pioneer in the evolution of modern living experiences. Theme Hotels presents very different approaches of architects and designers as well as hotel owners to fulfill these demands. The fifty hotels are structured according to seven themes: – Countryside Hotels, Designed Spaces, Historical Ties, Luxury Residences, Mountain Pastime, Urban Hideouts and Wellness Islands – all of them presented with plans and drawings as well as photos that prove why the hotels well deserve to be presented in this title of the series Architecture in Focus.
