diciott° stands for “diciotto gradi” (“eighteen degrees”) and it refers to the room’s wideness.
The concept takes inspiration from the hibernating compartments in the ship’s centrifuge of the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” by Stanley Kubrick.

We analysed the different functions inside a hotel’s room and minimized everything.
The result is a module, consisting of a bed, a desk and a chair, repeated around for twenty times creating a toroid.

In every quarter of the circle there are ve modules; four as bedrooms and, in the middle, the fth as a restroom. The restroom module is the same size of the others, but it is further split in two sections, toilet separated from the shower, to better organize client’s needs. Overall there are sixteen bedrooms and four restrooms.

The inner space generated by the modular repetition is intended to be a common area for everyone and it is accessible from every module through a door that leads into it. A circular hallway, sheltered by a canopy and sequenced by brise soleil for every module, stands as a lter between the private and the common space.

Each bedroom has an outside entrance openable with a smart card, though there is none for the restrooms, as to guarantee their use only to guests. Therefore the only way to enter them is through the inner space.

This concept proposes itself as a global network, creating an online community of travellers who can share experiences, tips, reviews and top up their smart cards to book the room.

diciott° aspires to be a exible and movable module that can be created in various contexts, catering to the need, providing an affordable place to stay for everyone.
