24 sep Antwerp Student Hostel takes its cue from the traditional Japanese capsule hotel
EEN GREEP UIT HET ARTIKEL | TERUG
Capsule hotels, a model which stacks multiple sleeping units into a single grid format, has a firm footing in cities across Japan and, in recent years, has seen a surge in popularity across the globe.
Some airports – including London Gatwick, London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol – offer sleep ‘pods’ complete with workspace, televisions and enough space to stand. This is a gross enhancement on the space afforded to those using the more traditional capsule hotel, which often means simple sleeping pods stacked in rows.
