Sea Architecture have recently completed ORA, a small hostel in Bangkok, Thailand, that was once a shop and residential house.

 

The concept for the design of the hostel was to create a modern loft feeling with the use of multiple materials, such as wood, concrete and steel. The space is just over 13 feet (4m) wide, with a depth of 39 feet (12m), and it is 6 stories tall.
