Dream hotel is designed as an upscale extension to the popular Dream Hostel. The hostel opened its doors in 2010 and is located in an old industrial building in the center of the city and in close proximity of the Tampere concert hall. To serve the needs of customers looking for an aordable double or twin room, Dream Hostel decided to extend the premises with an extra floor.

The cooperation between Studio Puisto Architects and dream hostel started in the fall of 2013 after a workshop of the Uusi-Kaupunki (New Town) collective. In the workshop Studio Puisto developed a concept for temporary accommodation in empty oces and industrial buildings. This turned out to be a perfect match with the plans and premises of Dream Hostel.

The open character of the industrial building is strengthened by placing the rooms as separate units in the open space. Thus creating a feeling of being in a public park in between individual volumes. To keep the rooms adorable they are kept compact and accommodate only the necessary. Space to read, relax and meet others guests is placed outside the individual rooms. About half of the rooms have a window with
street view, where as the other rooms are organized in clusters in the middle of the space with a skylight to the public space as a relation to the outside. In addition there is a kitchen area and meeting rooms at free disposal for the guests, oering extra value over a conventional hotel room.

The Dream Hotel was designed and constructed with a tight schedule and limited budget. To achieve the best result, design solutions were developed in tight cooperation between the architects, client, constructor and furniture manufacturer. Construction started in the spring of 2014 and the Dream Hotel opened its doors in the beginning of August.

To create a peaceful warm atmosphere and at the same time use materials responsibly, there is an extensive use of natural materials. The rooms are covered in locally sourced wood, the wall to wall carpeting of the public space is made of sisal, the sound insulation in between the rooms is made of wood fibers and all wooden surfaces are treated with natural oils.

With the Dream Hotel the architects have made a unique hotel concept, blurring the lines between a hotel and a hostel. Rather than full filling the conventional hotel standards it tries to oer everything that a guests really needs for a good nights sleep.
