Das Park Hotel

daspark_hotel_1

Welcome to Das Park Hotel in Linz, Austria. This unique hotel has transformed standard concrete sewer pipes into hotel rooms, simply by giving them a back wall and large front door, and drilling a window in the side for a little bit of natural light. Throw in a lamp, a bed, and some sleeping bags and you’ve got what looks like one of the most original hotel ideas.

    Interesting but not doesn’t seem fully realized. I cant see what is to the left of the door but I have to hope they provided for ventilation. I would have put a drawer under the bed and made the standing area flat. Also shelving/cubby hole to the left of the bed rather than just a flat shelf. The end wall really should have been where the window is, at least in addition to the single circular one high up. Does that open? I think this would feel like a tomb when you close the door. It would be cool if they made the shower/toilet areas the same tubes set upright to continue the theme, a toilet inside and shower heads along the outside. I dont understand why cities don’t provide these for the homeless/displaced populations. With simple balconies you could stack them as well. But i guess we are supposed to deny the issue. You could also spray the exterior with foam insulation to weather proof and insulate without detratcing from its tube-ness.

    This, and the wine barrel hotel rooms, would make for amazing backyard playhouses, or on the school playground.

    KFC: These existed in my grade school. They were part of the playground. I found them much fun. there were two.

    Love it idea wise but the space could be so much more.

    Hello!

    I saw this special “hotel” a long time ago in a report and now again. Does it still exist? Or was it only a special place for the “Kulturhauptstadt” project?

    Would be great if I can still visit it. Now it’s a little bit to cold and I am on travelling…but perhaps in summer?

    Yes it does! In Ottensheim (near Linz) they are placed right on the Danube riverside. :)
