POP UP HOTEL

POPUPHOTEL400x400POP UP HOTEL

Manhattan’s Midtown is in a real estate crisis.

Office vacancies are high, rents have been plummeting, and tenants are moving to New Jersey. A combination of outdated building stock, the economic recession, and a lack of amenities in the neighborhood have transformed Midtown from a vibrant business hub into an area of post-recession decline. The design of the Midtown Pop-Up Hotel focuses on the transformation of empty Class A office spaces into hospitality spaces.

The Pop-Up Hotel is designed to be a means of urban revitalization, an economic catalyst, as well as an active community partner. We strongly believe the Pop-Up Hotel to be a transformative experience for both the building and more importantly, the hotel guests.

Location: Midtown, Manhattan

 

1st Prize: Radical Innovations in Hospitality

Midtown is having an office vacancy crisis:

The opportunity comes in the form of TOURISM:

popuphotel16

Combining the problem of High Vacancies with the opportunity of High Tourism to create a new hospitality experience…

…from drab office space to PopUp Hotel!

popuphotel22

Like ordering from a restaurant menu, one can pick and choose from a wide variety of experiences…

Everything the hotel needs is easily packed and shipped on site with our very own Modular shipping containers!

ID Box = Interior Design / Identity Box! 

popuphotel25

Each box has an RF-ID tag to allow for tracking of the boxes as well as allowing for easy setup…

Imagine seeing 36 colorful boxes rolling through your neighborhood!

The possibilities of the ID-Box is limitless.

The transformation is complete: ID-boxed furniture changes vacant office floors to POP UP HOTEL floors:

Furnishing options reaching from backpacker hostel with bunk-bed setup…

…to high class suites. Every price range is possible with the modular ID-box furniture.

A variety of events are possible due to modular flexibility:

  9. [...] Pink Cloud’s plan starts with a menu of components that would-be hoteliers can tailor to their specific vision. From hotel beds and workstations to art exhibitions and martini bars, everything will be neatly packed and sent to hotel sites in modular shipping containers.
