The door is a key architectural element. In our design, the door becomes a wall, a window, both a seperator and connector. In the developed grid, twenty-eight doors become a performative space providing near infinite configurations. When our guest activates and self-configures these spaces, new combinations of rooms and new seperations will be created. The hotel room can be an intimate bedroom, a rooftop penthouse and an open pavilion, but most of all it becomes a constant play of human interaction, during day and night.

please VOTE for our design if you like it, if we are selected, we will go on to build it  in may. You’ll be able to book a night as well!
