Modern times experiences architecture as a destination. We begin developing an intimacy to a place, putting a certain building on our pedestal; have guided tours about the his- tory of the place. They encompass built paradigms of phe- nomenon, and building the unconventional has now become the convention. As a result, the way we experience an urban city becomes objective driven encounters, deviously ignoring context based achievements in its surroundings,

merely considering them the urban noise of existence.

If destinations are built for such travellers, then what about those who wander? What about people who want to live in between? If architecture is decorously defined as the built, then there is an equal amount of unbuilt which is unexplored territory, laden with intangible interpretations, appeal- ing to the intrepid traveller. They find it intimately appealing when they step away from the boundaries of the disciplined, and onto those of unchartered chaos of the city, because such places hold the key to unconsumed frenzy, raw culture and even isolation.

These places are residues..

People living ‘in between’ will only realise the depth of
their situational living when it is reduced to one simple
basic right of life: sleeping.

Re-animating these residues based on a contextual module can give a small essence of the city it represents, and what it has to offer. It is new beginning which could re-

define travelling, and ultimately sleeping.

Hotels are the most conventional forms of programmatic design, and there is no real attempt at redefining it be- cause it does not have any characteristics which necessar- ily has to be re-invented. Its resources all depend on the whims and calls of its targeted users: businessmen, vaca-

tioning families,etc.

Hence,re-defining the usership,by deconstructing its ame- nities and resources in the aim of redeveloping these res- idues,is what will make redefining ‘sleeping’ a reality..
