We’ll venture to say that most hotel rooms aren’t mobile — in fact, most hotel rooms are probably part of a much larger building that’s anchored to its foundation. Paris-based designer Ora Ito doesn’t think that architecture should conform to societal standards — an idea made especially clear through the modular, transportable living spaces they’ve created for AccorHotels.
The “Flying Nest” is a culmination of sustainable dwellings that have been fabricated entirely from old shipping containers, providing a warm, accommodating living space that can be packed up, transported, and reintroduced in a variety of locations. Each container features a 12-square-meter layout that combines a sleeping area, private bathroom, and living area in one well-thought-out unit. Picturesque views are achieved through the implementation of a single square window, providing a well-framed view of whatever location the traveling hotel calls home. Up to six modules are connected via terraces and formatted in a series of small islands to promote interaction between guests, while the eco-friendly wood exterior provides a sustainable and self-sufficient footprint.
