ANTONAS suggests that the existing bus should be left untouched on the outside while the interior should be converted into 7 small rooms. There will also be a water closet and a living area, along with plenty of storage space and an area to prepare food.

This is the ultimate adaptive re-use project that caters to travelers who are constantly on the move for whatever reason. Although it has not yet been realized, this is completely feasible since people have been roaming around in mobile homes for almost as long as we’ve existed. The difference this time is that strangers will share what appears to be a fairly tight but inspiring space. If the Bus Hotel does come to pass, we’ll be the first to book a week’s stay!
