Das Park Hotel

Das Park Hotel in architecture  with pipe hotel

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. :)
