Drain Pipe for a Kid’s Room?

in Design News, Travel


Just discovered Dasparkhotel in Austria where they’ve repurposed drainpipes into rooms for the traveler looking for something different. Writes the greenUpgrader:

Although you may feel like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sleeping in the sewer the accommodations are very private, supplied with 220V power, double bed, skylight window, decorative wall art, double door, storage space, and some peace and quiet. The main building located on the premises offers all other hotel amenities (including the bathroom!).

Now, you and I may never get to Austria to try these out, but how many of you are thinking that this might be a good idea for a playhouse or time-out spot in the your own backyard?
