Design firm A MILLIMETRE were tasked with designing this modern hostel in a 5-floor building that’s just 13 feet wide (4 metres) by 52 feet deep (16 metres).

The recently opened Bed One Block Hostel, located in Bangkok, Thailand, stands out on the street with its white facade of patterned perforated steel sheets that allow natural light through to the interior, and at the same time still maintains privacy.

The welcoming entrance has a wood door surrounded by windows letting you see inside, which is a strong contrast to the surrounding buildings with their metal doors and bars.

As the hostel is deep and narrow, the dormitory rooms have been set up with bunk beds, each with individual privacy curtains.
