Inbox Capsule Hotel: light packers’ ideal Hotel
DA Architect’s InBox Capsule Hotel in St. Petersburg is the perfect solution for adventurers on a budget
In addition to the obvious economic benefits, the InBox Capsule Hotel encourages more interaction between people. Travelers can be divided into two distinctive groups: those who carry lots of luggage and the light-packing adventurers.
Light packers are usually adventurous travelers who love exploring new cities. With those people in mind, DA Architects have designed the InBox Capsule Hotel, which has an out-of-the-box concept that works best for backpackers.
The InBox Capsule Hotel differs from other similar capsule-concept hotels in terms of coziness. Most similar hotels’ architecture have a more sterile and cold feeling to them. Unlike those hotels, this hotel has a very cozy mood that adds to its overall comfort.
The wood material of the hotel’s “boxes” and warm colors make the hotel’s design a warmer and cozier version of the typically colder industrial design.
The rest of the hotel’s space is clad in black brick and concrete with touches of raw wood seating. The use of wood plays a pivotal part in the overall feeling of the space. Using concrete only would have resulted in a completely different mood for this backpacker’s rest spot.
A Socializing Hub
In addition to the obvious economic benefits, the InBox Capsule Hotel by DA Bureau encourages more interaction between people. Aside from the private capsules, all the other commodities and spaces are shared among guests.
The common kitchen and lounges encourage people to mix and mingle, which is something that many adventurous travelers love to do. Getting to meet new people is an added perk of traveling, which makes some people prefer this type of hotels over the more traditional hotels.
Inbox Capsule Hotel’s location is also very convenient
Located at the heart of St. Petersburg, the hotel is a 15-minute walk from Chernyshevskaya Metro Station, the Russian Museum, Mikhailovsky Castle and the Field of Mars, which makes the hotel an even more attractive option when it comes to staying at a prime spot for a budget price.
