sleepbox by arch group.

a small, mobile compartment, sleepbox is made of wood and mdf. sleepbox is meant to “allow very efficient use of available space and, if necessary, a quick change of layout”.the hostel-specific sleepbox features bunk beds, flip-out tables and sockets for computers or phone chargers and not much else.

the capsule hotel by vlnr.

if you 're after comfort, this isn't the hotel for you, but bobbing up and down on the hague, these former oil rig escape capsules offer an unusual getaway from the commotion of city life.the capsule hotel aims to establish a brilliant piece of easily accessible 'garbage architecture'. "james bond meets barbarella", according to the creators.


  1. I can get the whole creative and innovative idea of the architecture and design of these hotels, however, I would't like to stay in, in either of them! they are cold, unfriendly, isolated and certainly lack human emotion! A hotel, for me should be exactly the opposite.

  2. Everyone dreams a hotel as something warm, friendly and relaxing. This is because the real life hotels are like this. So I disagree with Theodora and her negative comments. In my opinion it is a life experience to stay in such a hotel!!

  3. I would like to describe my comments as merely subjective than negative! :)Life experiences alter and become diverse for each one of us exaclty because of the subjectivess of our being. So, I clearly get what maria is saying and I hope she gets to visit one of these hotels soon. :)

  4. pio gamato ever to sleepbox!!!!! :):):):):):) just perfect!!!!

  5. Hostels are places in which meet people with adventurous spirit and who seek for new experiences but do not wish to spend a lot of money.
