portable hotel design

Moscow based studio Arch Group have designed the SLEEPBOX.

This project is a portable sleeping room has all your basic necessities (LED lamps, beds, chargers, ventilation, electrical outlets and WiFi) for a quick ‘getaway’ from a busy public place such as an airport, railroad stations, exhibition centers or shopping malls. The first SLEEPBOX was installed at the Aeroexpress terminal of Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow, Russia.

SLEEPBOX by Arch Group:

Imagine the situation where you are in a modern city, you are not a local resident, and you have not booked a hotel. It is not a comfortable situation because modern aggressive cities give you no opportunity to rest and relax. If you want to sleep while waiting for your plane or train, you face many security and hygiene problems.

We believe that urban infrastructure should be more comfortable. For this purpose we
have developed SLEEPBOX. It provides moments of quiet sleep and rest without wasting time in search for a hotel. SLEEPBOX allows everybody in unforeseen circumstances to spend a night safely and inexpensively or simply to kill a few hours without leaving the luggage. 

SLEEPBOX is a small mobile compartment (box) with a 2.5×1.6m base and 2.5-3m
height. One of its main advantages is its ability to be installed in the airport “clean” zone, just in front of the gates. This is precisely the area where travelers have to spend hours waiting for their delayed flights or transfer.
