The Cocoon Hotel by Dodeca Architects is a state-of-the-art resort facility that incorporates some of the most advanced and astonishing eco architectural concepts you've ever seen.

Built in a rugged African landscape, the Cocoon Hotel by Dodeca Architects serves the double purpose of providing accommodations and large green spaces for its occupants to enjoy. The hotel's outer rooms that line the exterior of the building, however, are where the real magic of the Cocoon Hotel occurs. Each outer room is lined with a "skin" that residents can control. Spread all across the building, these "skins" give the building its distinct cocoon appearance.
