glass-floor hotel.jpegThere aren't many times when walking on glass is a good idea, but the architects and designers at Les Cols Pavellones hotel in Spain made it so. The hotel, located just two hours north of Barcelona, takes style and sensuality to a new level, which is why it's today's Dramatic Design.

One step into this hotel and you'll notice something truly extraordinary: all the doors, walls and floors at Les Cols Pavellones are created completely of green glass and black steel. Even the guest room bathrooms are completely see-through. In an effort to keep guests focused on their own originality, the rooms are void of televisions, phones, or radios. The glass construction also adds a touch of the organic - glass floors allow guests to view the earth - and what's growing in it - beneath.

It's one-part futuristic, one-part sensual, and one-part eco-friendly. Rooms at Les Cols Pavellones start at $355.
