spamroom: plus one berlin hotel room

  ‘plus one berlin’ hotel room by spamroom

spamroom is a berlin-based architecture and design studio that has refurbished the ‘plus one berlin’ interior as an alternative to a standard hotel room. the multi-purpose space combines different elements and materials to reflect its surroundings of the creative, raw and surprising neighbourhood of neukoelln. the project re-uses and showcases salvaged materials in its design the avoidance of dividers, where the search for flexibility and the multiplicity of uses of the elements have influenced the design process.

as the 30sq meter space is small, the shape of the units has been kept simple and functional so they can be used in multiple ways and to allow 
maximum usage. the main unit can be used as a cabinet for clothes, as a storage unit and also as a kitchenette. the unit utilizes a collage of new 
plywood and salvaged panel doors and old parquet floor boards, which have been re-worked and altered to fit their new use. it changes its 
orientation and the shape and type of its openings depending on the relationship with the areas it serves. the lighting in the main space is either 
restored brass lamps or custom-made lamps made out of old copper pipes, shaped depending on the spot that they have to light.
