Sleeping Around: A New Pop-Up Hotel Built From Shipping Containers

by Adele Peters

January 26, 2013

Sleeping Around designed the hotel rooms from old shipping containers, which are often left behind in port cities when it's not profitable to send them back empty. The containers were outfitted with everything you'd expect to find in a modern hotel room, using sustainable design principles. It seems like a good way to reuse the boxes, though it's interesting to wonder how much energy went into retrofitting them (as Lloyd Alter writes on Treehugger, shipping container architecture doesn't always make sense).
