Architects in Hong Kong have designed a Jenga-inspired hotel. The Hive–Inn hotel would be composed of recycled shipping containers which can be inserted and removed, depending on the needs and business of the hotel. The Jenga-like grid structure would allow containers to be slotted in and removed without disturbing the other container rooms.
The creators, Slimane Ouahes and Christophe Barthelemy, of Ova Studio believe that it is not just an innovative hotel design with space for branding. They feel the idea could also be extended as a response for emergency housing or medical-care units.
The duo explained that the design of the hotel Lies in the idea of maximum flexibility and mobility. This is a trend that is embodied in our modern way of living.

Barthelemy explained, “Containers came as a natural answer to this vision; the challenge was to keep it technically feasible, mobile and fun. We wanted to keep the true nature of containers alive: containers are mobile, containers travel! It created this interesting paradox in which hotel rooms can come to you, expanding the market to residents.”
