We Hostel Design
An amazing new hostel in São Paulo; the first design hostel in the city.
The 1910’s mansion had its original room disposition nearly unaltered, though it was completely renovated in terms of interior design and amenities. The interior design, signed by the young architect Felipe Hess, is vintage and plain composed of mobile panned across the city. Contemporary pieces blend to this scenario, renewing the atmosphere that part of the eclectic style of the mansion, goes through the lines of retro furniture and culminates in the practicality of hosting solutions.
The WE has 46 vacancies total, with shared rooms accommodating a maximum of 8 people. There is one en suit just for women, with a balcony; one room for couples, with a queen size bed and a huge balcony; one private room and 6 shared dorms. All of them are equipped with individual lockers, wall sockets and reading lights.
The creative direction of Rodrigo Marangoni makes a connection between the real and the virtual by using QrCodes on strategic spots in the house. The guests can access custom set lists by reading the codes. In addition, maps of Metro service and sights can also be downloaded on the guest's phone, making it easier to foray through the city.
