Harbour town in Germany gets hostel made of repurposed shipping containers

Berlin-based Holzer Kobler Architekturen and Kinzo Architekten have collaborated on Germany’s first upcycled hostel. The Dock Inn is made out of multiple repurposed shipping containers that have been carved out to create 64 guest rooms which all feature a vibrant interior design that mixes urban chic with industrial charm. Located in Warnemunde, Germany, the Dock Inn shipping container hostel is surrounded by the local harbour and shipyard.

A maritime theme runs throughout the space, which is filled with reclaimed furnishings, to pay homage to the containers’ seafaring past. With a total capacity of 188 beds, the rooms vary from private rooms to dormitory-style spaces that have eight single beds. The rooms are compact with sleek interiors. Bright red walls contrast nicely with all white linens in some rooms, while upholstery made of natural materials in muted colours give off a nice earthy feel in others.
