Compact cabin


We were asked to conceive, develop and productionise ‘Compact Cabin’ hotels for Heathrow, Gatwick and Schiphol airports. We had to create a system of component parts that enabled the concept to be rolled out across the globe and in airport sites and city centres alike – areas where space is at a premium.

Everything you would expect from a luxury hotel in a small space – right inside the airport terminal, accessible from the public areas yet just a moment’s walk from check in and departure gates.

Yotel received both an IF award and a Red Dot Award in 2003 and a nomination for a Deutsche Design Preis.
