In the first place we wanted to create a temporary hostel for festivals and events in a way of camping. It has to be easily transported and flexible with the amount of “rooms”.
Starting from the idea of a container park, we kept the quality of the simple transportation and created smaller units, which include sleeping and storage facilities.
We choose the triangle as the main shape of our construction, because it can be easily fit on one to each other. In this way we save space and build a stable construction for another level. The second level is a bit shifted in comparison to the first level, so it creates a walkway to reach the rooms of the second floor and to build a roofed area on the ground floor.
We designed three different types of units.
The first one is a double bed unit, with storage place in the top and the sides of the triangle.
The second unit is a single bed unit, that you reach over two stairs. You can store your stuff in the place under the bed.
The last unit includes a breezeway which allows you to cross the structure. It also includes some lockers and a bench.
Our construction is composed by triangular metal frames. In every corner of the triangle they are connected to a steel profile that ends in another triangular frame. Each profile has four round protuberances and four round indentations. That’s how the units can be attached to each other.
As walls we use wooden panels that are attached to the metal frame. In the top corner of the triangle we place a steel sheet to connect the wood to the metal and protect the inside area from rain water as well.
The front is covered with a plastic fabric that can be easily opened as this is the entrance /“door” of the unit. The back wall is made of another wooden panel.
There are two staircases, one on each end of the construction. A metal ladder leads to the walkway of the second level. The ladder is attached to the metal profile and is leaning against the wooden wall of the ground floor unit.
The whole construction is based on a system of metal rods. They are connected with the same round protuberances and round indentations like the units.
The units can be lifted in a convenient way, they have metal hooks that are attached to the metal frame. This way they can be picked up and put on a truck for a fast and easy transportation.
