Honeycomb is a reflection on a model of low cost hotel based on an original structural concept where recycled freight containers serve as both support envelope for prefabricated interior fittings and formwork for the concrete superstructure built on site. On these prerequisites, the design of the unit/ hotel room is conceived from the inside by partially covering the container’s exposed corrugated walls with panels and cabinets in relation with future occupants’ uses and needs.
