The Eden Hotel is a joint venture between the Eden Project and the RED Hotel Group. The 120 bedroom hotel, plus lodges located in the surrounding landscape, is to be a designed as a model of sustainable development and sustainable hotel construction.
The design is to be solid, simple, functional and comfortable, with generous flexible shared space areas and dispersed accommodation with direct access to the Cornish landscape. Local materials will be used to create a building that is efficient in design, energy consumption and use. The new building will sit gently within the surrounding countryside with use of external landscaping and views to bring the outside into every part of the hotel.
The client team is determined that the design will move sustainability beyond construction into operation, participation and learning. The building will embody and extend the philosophy of Eden and Red Hotels.
