Hive-Inn: A Hotel of the Future Made From Shipping Crates

3029614 inline hive inn 10

Architechts at Hong Kong’s Ova Studio have developed the idea of a hotel made entirely from shipping crates that move in an out of a metal frame. From FastCoExist:

“Containers are designed to be stackable on one another, like Legos, to facilitate transportation and insure stability,” explains Slimane Ouahes, director of OVA. “Usually, container buildings use this to easily and quickly put up a building, but that immobilizes the container in a final resting place. We wanted to keep the true nature of containers alive: Containers are mobile, containers travel.”

In a disaster, units for housing, medical services, schools, or government agency offices might be quickly shipped to a site and slotted into place. Each container could be fully built off-site, so construction wouldn’t disturb current residents. As needs change, containers could easily come and go.

An insert under each container hooks the unit up with electricity, partially generated from the building’s waste, and water. The insert even supplies soil for growing a small kitchen garden. If a container is taken out, the designers say that a little bit of nature can come back: The exposed soil can be used to grow wildflowers and support bees.

  1. Someone has been harvesting business ideas from Snow Crash. The next iteration of this “hotel”, it will be afloat a “barge” in the middle of the Pacific.

  2. Reminds me of that Xanadu/American Dream shopping mall they’re building in the New Jersey Meadowlands
