A hostel at Saisons Zéro
The "cells" in which the Poor Clares used to sleep have been transformed into alternative hostel rooms.
Ensuring residents enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep while minimising interventions on the building as much as possible is one of the challenges of the temporary use project. As an answer, Zerm has designed canopy beds: small boxes within larger boxes, the beds are draped and then uncovered with the changing seasons, while their entrance and their window dimensions are designed to fit the existing ones. Storage spaces and shelves come as finishing touches.
