Lily of the Valley - The Hanging Gardens Of The French RivieraLily of the Valley  

Lily of the Valley is the love project of a father and daughter who manifested their dream hotel in the world-famed Côte d'Azur - the Mediterranean coastline of southeast France.

They hired Philippe Starck, a French industrial architect, and designer, to bring Lily of the Valley to life. His two-level structure is made of stone, wood, concrete, and marble.

If you see any resemblance to one of the ancient seven wonders of the world, that's no coincidence. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon was an inspiration for the plant-covered building.
