    LAVA has re-imagined a youth hostel near Munich, Germany. Gone are the daggy dormitory rooms and impersonal spaces of your typical hostel.

    It has individualised rooms, bold colours, local materials and craftsmanship, and multipurpose zones. The sustainable makeover includes a low energy facade, floor heating, and the installation of a bimass pellet heating system. And there's built‐in furniture and integrated storage.

    LAVA’s reinterpretation of an existing youth hostel has resulted in a new type of space. The design is all about the individuality of spaces - LAVA achieved this by the clever reorganisation of the existing volume resulting in different types of bedrooms.
