A Hotel Built from Salvaged Materials

Izabella Simmons September 27, 2012

Take note, hoteliers: here are some innovative ideas of how to build a small yet versatile hotel room using salvaged materials, courtesy of a cutting-edge Berlin firm.

Spamroom, a Berlin-based architecture and design studio, recently built Plus One Berlin, a concept hotel room occupying only 30 square meters. The designers created the space with sustainability and craftsmanship in mind: "The design of the Plus One Berlin space brings together functionality, flexibility, and showcases not only the reuse of materials but also how forms and units can be designed for multiple uses, " says Spamroom. For more information, go to Plus One Berlin.

Above: The bed is the centerpiece of the room and serves both as sleeping quarters and a bar area (with stools along the kitchen side). A third bed can be created with the three pull-out modules, which also serve as both seating and storage.
