Namur riverside hotel plan with floating bedrooms
Namur restaurateur Benoît Gersdorff presented his vision of a riverside hotel and restaurant at the Mipim professional real estate fair in Cannes.
He plans to rebuild his current restaurant, Plage d’Amée, to include floating hotel rooms; they would be attached to a jetty at night and free to navigate the river Meuse for breakfast by day.
Each solar energy-powered catamaran would consist of a bedroom, shower and indoor and outdoor lounge areas. The project, currently called O, would replace the current riverbank restaurant.
Designed by Barcelona-based Namur architect Patrick Genard, it would be an eco-friendly and self-sufficient construction, featuring a greenhouse, rooftop bar and urban cafe.
Gersdorff is also the owner of the Ne5t hotel at the citadel in Namur.
