Wroclaw-based architecture and design studio Znamy się brings new life to abandoned reefer trucks and turned them into rolling hotel rooms. Good Spot is the first mobile hotel chain in Poland, that aims to offer a unique off-grid experience to its visitors, bringing them closer to nature.
The trio of architects behind the Poland-based architecture firm Znamy się met while studying Architecture together at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. Aleksandra Majdzik, Bogna Kawa-Nowak, and Wojciech Nowak have since crafted apartments and offices that meld historic details with contemporary intervention, as well as working on breweries and restaurants.
What if the hotel room could move around? If it could stay in places offering the best conditions and closeness to nature?
Huge amounts of disused isothermal refrigerated semi-trailers are imported to Poland. This was the starting point of Znamy się, which decided to revitalize them, giving them a second life. The exterior is inspired by steel Airstreams, while the inside is defined by warm custom wooden cabinetry. A kitchen and bathroom add function and ease. Two bedrooms enable a family or a group of friends to travel together—perhaps even friends who met at school and stayed connected.
The revamped layout is based on solutions typical of camper vans, where all functions are located around the perimeter as a way to maximize space in a small area.
The project consists of four mobile hotels; the first has been completed and the other three are in production.
