berlin based firm, kinzo, has completed the interior design for a container-hostel in warnemünde. surrounded by the local harbour and shipyard, the project marks germany‘s first upcycling hostel. the idea to build a hostel out of vacant shipping containers is unprecedented and the interior design by kinzo aims to capture the rough charm of the area by combining the industrial look of the harbour with an urban aesthetic.

the containers are dyed in four different colours and on the inside the 12 x 2.5m layout of the containers is divided into useful sections by well-placed cabinetwork, even integrating a separate bathroom space. cozy upholstery made of natural materials in muted colours is also implemented by kinzo to complement the design. the hostel comprises of 64 rooms with a total of 188 beds located in four different types of containers. 30 sqm high cube sea containers are transformed into spacious double and four-bed rooms whereas two containers welded together create spacious harbour suites as well as affordable eight-bed dorms.

the decor of the public spaces has an adventurous feel to it and the wooden reception and bar counters take up the materiality of the rooms. an almost randomly positioned stack of europallets, the so-called ‘raft’, becomes the central meeting point of the open restaurant. in the galley, you can prepare your own food and eventually end the day overlooking the harbour. with its different and unusual design, the hostel makes a bold statement in the surroundings of warnemünde.
