The first completed Sleepbbox 01 by Russian Architects ArchGroup, consisting of Michael Krymov, Alina Vasilieva and Alexei Goryainov, has been installed at Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow, Russia.

A compact mobile container with a 2.5×1.6m base and 2.5-3m height. They are available in 1, 2 and 3 sleeper models and can be rented by the hour.

It’s mainly for indoor use. If you look at it, the small wooden interior gives you the impression of staying on board of a small but snug yacht.

Tubohotel Mexico Overview
Tubo Hotel Mexico
Time to introduce another unusual hotel.
Tubohotel in Mexico has taken the idea of the Austrian Das Park drainpipe hotel to further perfection by installing a couple of drainpipes in a orchard in a little town, Tepoztlan, Morelos about 45 minutes south of Mexico City.

In their Faq they promise more than just climbing the surrounding mountains:

We offer additional services for groups such as event assistance, family reunions, banquets, weddings, bar mitzvas, aboriginal walk-abouts, ritual blood-lettings . . . Okay, just wanted to see if you were still actually reading. Yes, we do some real kick-ass events with the very lovely and talented celebrity chef, Ana Garcia.
