Hotel in a Drain Pipe

Das Parkhotel offers visitors sleeping quarters in very large recycled concrete drain pipes. It uses a pay-what-you-can model. There are two locations – one is located between Bottrop and Essen in Germany, the other on the Danube near Linz in Austria. Each location has three to five drain pipe rooms, each with a secure door.

The interior space is somewhat reminiscent of an igloo, with very thick concrete walls. Each room has a full double bed with light sleeping bag and woolly blanket. There is also indoor lighting and storage. Sanitation is not part of the rooms, but is available at nearby public facilities. Designer Andreas Strauss incorporated the ideas of reuse and micro-housing.

Still a yurt girl, but this is a great use of leftover culvert pipe.
