Rest anywhere, anytime.
It is meant for light luggage and spontaneous travelers looking for an easy-quick access place to crash, either if they are alone or with someone else, Sleeping Point is meant to offer the experience of sharing with other people and a place to sleep, diminishing the process of booking in advanced, giving the opportunity to act more freely during traveling.
Sleeping point is a small hotel spread around the city, is a network of spaces strategically located near the most emblematic and touristic places. Sleeping point offers not only a place to stay for the fearless travelers but it also gives something in return to the city. Around the module has different benches, planters that diminish the visual impact and also offers Wi-Fi and a connecting point in case other tourists need to use the internet and recharge their battery, enhancing the friendly experience of the city.
It works with and app where you can locate the nearest available sleeping point, book it and pay your stay, giving you a code to access. This flexible ser- vice allows you to use it at any time during the day and night, is a service avail- able the 24hours a day, so if by any chance during a walk through the city, you are feeling tired and want to rest for a couple hours to recharge and continue the tour, it is not necessary to go back to the traditional hotel, which would take time to go back that is basically wasted, you simply need to check with the app and book it for the time needed, get some rest and continue the travel without any problem.
Sleeping point is a module that has 4 beds divided in single spaces each one with its own door, and one bathroom equipped with everything needed. Each space has a small skylight allowing the light to enter during the day and main- taining the privacy of the guests. Apart from the skylights, on the roof is located a water tank, which serves the bathroom, some solar panels to collect energy and a green area that surrounds the volume keeping it protected from the sun and decreasing the visual impact on its surroundings. It is made with a metallic structure, to make it resistant and easy to assemble with prefabricated pieces, covered with wood inside and outside with metal panels, and between them is an insulation material.
