Designed to be easily movable, the seasonal hotel had its first location on a surf campsite alongside the Elbe riverbank.

Upstairs, there are four rooms accessed through a shared terrace. All the rooms have one large floor-to-ceiling window, so that despite the small size of the rooms, they still feel airy and have views of the surrounding area.

Inside the rooms, the walls and ceilings are finished in birch plywood, as is all of the custom designed furniture.

When it gets hot in the summer, an awning is attached above rooms and the facades are covered with waste wood planks from a nearby sawmill to block the direct sun.

The containers are placed only on railroad sleepers. Each container functions separately and are connected only to a local electric power source. The container with the bathroom facilities has an inbuilt water reservoir to supply showers and sinks, which are equipped with water-saving taps.
