Capsule Hotel by Sigma Architectural Design, Kyoto

June 14th, 2013 by retail design blog

Erected on a six-metre-wide city-centre site, this capsule hotel sets new standards for what is a typically Japanese form of accommodation. The name, “9h Hotel”, indicates the recommended duration of stay, namely nine hours: seven for sleep and an hour each for showering and grooming. The 1.20 ≈ 2.34 m plastic sleeping capsules are no larger than standard cells of this kind, but here the design is both functional and aesthetic.
