Overstay / Self-Service Staying


What if finding a place to stay for any amount of time were as simple as hailing an Uber? Overstay is a self-service “staying system,” in which a simple app allows you to locate and check into a premium space with all the essentials for living, for as long as you want.

The energy is renewable, the labor is crowdsourced, and responsible behavior is rewarded. Overstay attempts to move toward a society of abundance and sharing. It creates a luxury experience out of owning less, consuming less, and harming the environment less.
