Classic, minimalist, thematic, urban, luxury, boutique, technological, high up in the mountains, in the middle of the desert … or even underwater. In short: for tastes, hotels.

The offer is multiplied every day, but they all have a common denominator: the eagerness to make a difference. And in this sense, Tetra Hotel, a concept still under development, cannot be compared to any other accommodation.

Tetra shed is a mosaic building system that they decided to develop as a garden office, given the rise of telecommuting today. In addition to becoming the most innovative system to work from home, aroused the interest of the hospitality industry in order to develop a different boutique hotel and above all seen so far.

Sustainability and respect for the environment are the basis of this project, neutral in carbon emissions and designed to be built with local materials, from each location where it sits.

For this, they will have a mobile factory from which to obtain the necessary materials for the construction of the hotels.


The pod-shaped capsules on which the Tetra Hotel is structured resemble the cocoons of silkworms.

Despite settling on the ground by a single point, its stability is achieved by grouping them four by four. Each pod will have a bedroom, bathroom, hall and even an office.

And the proposal goes further: “Although our proposal is a hotel, the public areas within the scheme will attract a large number of visitors. These will include bars, restaurants, as well as space for markets, exhibitions, fairs and events, ”says John Stephens of the Tetra team to

“Tetra Hotel has been designed to be extremely versatile and we anticipate that most of the functions in public areas are aimed at design and creativity. For example, the work of talented young designers and creatives in various disciplines could be exhibited within these areas, ”explains Stephens.

They also want to collaborate with the fashion industry, offering a space to hold parades and events. "Many of the leading fashion firms are adopting architecture in their designs and presentations and Tetra Hotel would be a perfect scenario, " he says.
