Maybe you`ve already seen enough and there are not a lot of things that can attract your attention, but Hive-Inn concept hotel is definitely one of them.


Have you ever dreamed about building a toy-like hotel where you can spend an amazing time with all the friends? Or maybe use it as a work space instead of dull and boxy offices? OVA Studio, based in Hong Kong which specializes in architecture and interior design, definitely have considered our childhood`s dream. Here comes the new concept of hotel – Hive-Inn.

At first glance at Hive-Inn, you may think that it is a giant Jenga puzzle, made from shipping containers. Recycled shipping containers are in trend now, there are a lot of ways they can be used: art-spaces, micro-homes, schools and even theaters. The main point is, just like in Jenga game, recycled shipping containers can be easily rearranged or removed, depending on the hotel`s needs. Due to such mobility these shipping containers can be used by those who are temporary in need of space, for example by advertisement companies. Recycled containers are really a great surface for any kind of brand`s promotion. International brands shouldn’t leave out the possibility to design the room inside in out as it a smart way of advertising. OVA Studio claims that the fans all over the world would definitely love to have an opportunity to stay in a place totally themed by the company. In future, however, it is even possible that some of containers could be sold as a private property, so that when you travel, your home could travel along. Designers didn’t limit Hive Inn just to hotel industry. It may be used for a small offices or even emergency houses, or medical care units.


The idea of such concept, presented at Radical Innovation Award event, bounds up with our modern way of life, where we demand  for maximum flexibility. Sooner or later such kind of structure could be found all over the world.

Despite of all the creative ways of using shipping containers, we shouldn’t forget about their main purpose. Shipping containers and more other metal-related products can be found at Shanghai Metal Corporation, one of the leading businesses in the manufacturing of metal products in the global field.
