Schulp (Little Cottage)

Covered in canvas, which protects it from the elements, and enclosed with netting, the Schulp looks like a hanging porch. The largest of all the rooms, this mini cottage two-and-a-half meters off the ground features three distinct rooms with two single beds in each and is reached by a floating ladder.

El Ambassador

El Ambassador is the VIP room. A wooden cocoon shaped structure with glass skylights, this room accommodates two people. Also suspended two-and-a-half meters off the ground, this deluxe high-flying hotel room is suspended from four different points.

Night Box

The Night Box is the most secure of all the rooms. A wooden cube-shaped structure that stands on a sturdy steel frame, “the ugly duckling” is draped in a colorful patchwork of all kinds of random recycled materials. The roof opens to allow ventilation and light and the sides of the box flip down to give access to the bed inside. Only two people will sleep comfortably in this room, which also boasts a nifty sliding door!

+ Time Circus

Here is a list of artists who collaborated with this project: Sam Verdonck, Adriaan Van der Halle, Bram Rombouts, Marie Storup, Sara Dandois, Wim Van Hoof, Mam’mout and Sebastiaan Boumans
