An eco-hotel will be built at Eden Project in Cornwall after it received a go-signal for construction from the local council. The 109-room hotel will be designed by Tate Harmer, one of UK's leading architects for sustainability.

The Eden Project Hotel is considered as the first hotel on the site apart from having the 58-room YHA Eden Project hostel with bunks constructed from shipping containers. The new accommodation is also to be built with local stone cladding and timber poles within the Cornish area.

Executive Director of the Eden Project, David Harland, told The Telegraph: "Our ambition has always been to build a hotel at Eden, so we're pleased to have been granted planning permission. We feel the design is eye-catching but in keeping with its surroundings, and we're proud to say that it will be built to the highest environmental standards."

The hotel will be separated into two blocks to lessen the visual impact. Old trees and stonewalls around the property will be included in the design of the hotel. Meadows and orchards will also be made to surround the building. Moreover, the hotel will include classrooms to support their educational programs such as apprenticeships and degree-level courses.

In 2015, Eden Project proposed the hotel to the Cornwall Council and got its initial permission to build the accommodation. However, it was pushed back when locals voiced their concerns about the scale and design of the project.

The building costs £8.5 million with construction to start late this year. The target opening of the hotel will be in April 2018 just in time for spring and boasts of easy access to road paths.

The Eden Project is a famous tourists destination in Cornwall that consists of biodomes housing rainforests and other terra forms. It has various art spaces, nature exhibitions, and gardens where they serve year-long events.
