Designer of container-based structures SG Blocks (SGBX) built a container-based open-air bar and a hotel room mock-up for Marriott’s Moxy Hotels. The project was unveiled at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit on the grounds of Nokia Plaza in Los Angeles. It coincides with the launch of the U.S. edition of Marriott's new brand, Moxy, which already operates in Europe.
The prototypes are meant to demonstrate Moxy’s fun, edgy, and youthful spirit and provide a space for the patrons to get more acquainted with the Moxy Hotel concept. The 20 x 8-foot bar was engineered with external flaps to make it expandable to 20 x 20-feet.
The mock-up is currently at Marriott’s corporate headquarters in Bethesda, MD, from where it will be sent across the country for use at various corporate events. The one-container hotel room prototype will permanently be on display at Marriott’s headquarters.
