ABSTRACT
The article reports on the five-star hotel project of Colman Architects at the base of K2 mountain in Pakistan. The hotel has been designed with a 400-bed to be built using local materials including locally quarried rock. The project will be located in Tashkurgan, the last town on the Karakoram Highway. Trevor Colman, director of Colman Architects, reveals that the client is very keen on feng shui, thus the hotel is laid out on a north-west to south-east access for good luck.
