In recent years, the tourism industry, and particularly the hospitality sector, has made a shift in “being together”, with hotels evolving into collaborative spaces, where users are co-habiting harmoniously and getting rich in experiences within alternative and special accommodations. EASY HOSPITALITY combined project (living, working, entertaining & making experiences) is an open, freestanding pavilion. The main concept is based on the idea of a public core, a circular and dynamic meeting space that grows radially, with the levels of privacy increasing as you move away from the centre of the pavilion. Within a very short radius, are located the kitchen, the shared living room and the work area. On either side of the public space is located the sleeping and short-term residence unit, combined with a more private living room. On the other side, can be found the humid spaces and a small media room.
