During the summer, the Centrumeiland of Ijburg in Amsterdam hosts what they call an “urban campsite”. It is essentially a public exhibition and art-sleep experience made up out of fourteen innovative and creative habitats. A diverse group of designers, architects and artists were invited to build these spaces that could function as bedrooms ready for local residents and tourists to stay in.
These homes, bookable on AirBNB, are certainly an imaginative collection that include a fruit-shaped shelter made from recyclable materials, a tepee that features a trampoline for a roof (directly above the sleeping area!) and a ultra modern minimalist white loft with circular portholes that allow for outdoor viewing. There are also recreation areas that offer community interaction and cooking, while the industrial ‘tribal toilet tower’ certainly proposes something different to your regular bathroom experience.
