Sleeping as a geographical element

Progress allowes, or obligates, a growing number of people to move, making for a bigger demand of sleeping facilities around the world. The more people travel, the more specific are the needs that hotels must satisfy, thus originating different variations of this typology.

The main service, though, remains providing a place to sleep in, independently of geographical location and of user target.

The differences between these types of structures are the extra services they offer, and the variations stem from the will to reach other segments of users.

The Hotel embraces all of these considerations and consists on a single and uniform sleeping service: The Hotel spreads all over the planet, becoming a worldwide accommodation facility. The Room is scattered globally, sleeping takes over geographical space. Its diffusion creates the possibility of sleeping everywhere in the world.

The world and its history are accessible from every point of the Cartesian grid, absorbing all extra services and removing the need to provide any specific service in any specific place. The Door becomes the symbol of the limit of the sleeping space, separation between private and public.
