‘While the idea of sleeping in a sewer pipe might not immediately connote luxury in your mind, this hotel design turns concrete pipes into quite the comfortable space for your next overnight stay. Almost like glorified camping, theDasParkHotel (in Ottensheim, Austria) is a series of individual hotel room pipes, set on a beautiful flora-filled backdrop just steps from the Danube River.
The external simplicity surrounds an unexpectedly comfortable interiorÃ¢â‚¬Â as each pipe is outfitted with a bed, lighting, and other furniture, with bathroom and restaurant facilities shared in a public space. And what’s more, DasParkHotel obtains sanitation and other hotel facilities from existing public infrastructure, allowing them to operate on a Ã¢â‚¬Å“pay as you wishÃ¢â‚¬Â system in which guests pay only what they can afford or wish to contribute. ‘
