hours of wasted time and stress in transient periods during travel may soon be completely erased with the new ‘sleepbox‘ mobile hotel room conceptby russian practice arch group. the short-stay sleeping unit is ideal for just about any location where people may find themselves in need of rest withoutthe time or ability to hunt down an available location – airports, railroad stations, exhibition centers, shopping centers, and even outdoors if the weatherpermits. at 4 square meters, the installation can fit just about anywhere and instantly becomes an added feature with its modular characteristic and ability for customization.

 

each autonomous room contains nearly all the comforts of home: a bed, fold out table, built-in alarm and intercom, wifi router, LED mood lights, safe-depositbox, touchscreen TV, tinting windows, an automated payment system, and electrical sockets, and are available in either MDF, metal, or glass-reinforced plasticwith one, two, or three beds. the first prototype installed in sheremetyevo airport received so much success that the concept is now being commercialized with the ambition to spread around the world, offering a safe comfortable place to leave your possessions or catch some rest before setting off on your journey.

the architects have also shared with us images of the first sleepbox hotel in tverskaya that covers 800 square meters over four levels with their individual units. the ground floor contains reception, a digital interactive information zone (with maps and ipads), lobby, and private lockers. restrooms and showers are located on each floor, separate to the rooms and fixed to the host structure itself, while maintaining the particular aesthetic of the project.
