Back in 2017, a hotel that is swiss with no walls made the headlines. And it turns out the people who designed it have come up with another version – people are now paying over $300/night to sleep…wait for it…at a gas station!
An “open-air” suite
Do you like the idea of open-air sleep? Do you like sleeping outside for $340/night?
Well, as long we might know just the place for you as you don’t like
air or sleeping peacefully. (so we won’t be signing up any time soon for the “room” located at an intersection and entirely without walls*)For us, the most important part of a hotel room is the ability to get some rest. Even as you sleep outside a gas station (in a nice bed, though!) may not be the right choice for you either if you have that fairly common love for the smell of gasoline, the idea of hearing traffic, noise, and smelling gas all night.
According to Architectural Digest (cited below): “Brothers and conceptual music artists Frank and Patrik Riklin, whom partnered with hotelier Daniel Charbonnier to produce this resort ‘room,’ are completely conscious you will not be resting peacefully inside their latest hospitality experience— but that’s precisely the point. ‘In view of this world that is current, there is no time to sleep,’ the brothers said in a statement.”
But isn’t that why we try to get away?!AD notes that “The open air suite
—which is located between a gas station and busy intersection and purposefully lacks a door, ceiling, or walls—is designed to keep you up so you have time to contemplate current social, economic, and environmental issues.”
A room with a view
The designers became famous with a concept that is similar few years back – and even though it is nevertheless not just one we might actually enjoy, at the least it appears more enjoyable and relaxing. In reality, the brothers’ very first accommodation nevertheless has tens and thousands of individuals in the waitlist after making headlines in 2017: “This space is another iteration of this founders’ ‘zero property rooms,’ that they established back 2008 included in their Null Stern resort. The initial three rooms, including a queen sleep on a platform and two nightstands, all utilize Swiss Alps and breathtaking Saillon landscape to produce picturesque overnight remains in a experience that is glamping-like. Currently, there are over 6,000 guests on the waitlist eager for the opportunity to spend an evening at the hotel that is non-traditional*),” said AD.
The Riklins don’t possess the actual only real open-air suites into the globe – there are some other rooms in hotels without walls aswell, and they are very popular.
We say every single their own. It is simply we want to phone that camping. — WTF enjoyable facts
