INSIDEOUT / visionary hotel concept


This visionary new housing concept picks up the common trend to showcase oneself and therefore emphasizes the society’s shift towards more exhibitionism. These new forms of interplay between privacy and publicity are transferred into a whole new hotel concept.

The structure of the hotel is based on individual glass cells. Each room consists of a glass cube and thus offers full transparency to the insides and outside of the hotel. Solely by occupying the glass walls, each guest can individually create its own intimate or public area. The hotel room as a retreat is replaced by a platform for self-expression, self-exposure and interaction.
