Pop-Up Shipping Container Hotel by Geoffrey Stampaert
By Inthralld on Jan 29, 2013
There’s nothing more exciting and comforting when traveling than setting up at your favorite hotel chain, or on the other side of the spectrum– trying something completely outside of the box. With the “Sleeping Around” shipping container hotel, travelers can have both.
Geoffrey Stampaert based this concept on the ever popular "pop up shops" that have taken over shopping malls everywhere and adapted it to hotel design.
Upcycled shipping containers have been created into room modules that can be packed up and shipped off, so you can stay in your favorite “room” in an endless variety of locations.
The hotel is a total of seven shipping containers, with four rooms and the other three containers being a lounge, sauna, kitchen and breakfast space.
Each room has all of the sleeping essentials: bed, bathroom, shower and even AC. One full ‘wall’ of the container is comprised of sliding glass doors, and the hotel has the potential to be a fully sustainable hospitality compound.
