Namur riverside hotel plan with floating bedrooms

May 31, 2017

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.
