London – A new hotel room design aims to solve the problem of confined urban spaces. The new concept room at the Hoxton Hotel in East London, designed by architecture and design firm Project Orange, measures just 15 square metres. Despite the tiny area, a double bed, desk and shower fit into the room.
The materials used intend to reflect the rough and ready nature of the city’s location. The carpet, for instance, has been deliberately distressed and the bed is constructed from reclaimed floorboards. The homely, but risky aesthetic is also reminiscent of LS:N Global’s Mix Mash design direction.
