Baltic Regeneration
Shed Hostel, Liverpool
DATA RESEARCH CONDUCTED ON HOSTELS HIGHLIGHTED THE NEGATIVE STIGMA ATTACHED TO BUDGET ACCOMMODATION IN THE UK, WE HOPE TO CHANGE THIS – ASKING USERS TO LITERALLY ‘SHED’ ANY PRECONCEIVED CONCEPTIONS THEY MAY HAVE.
The main aim of this project was to create awareness and aid in the regeneration of one of liverpool’s most vibrant and creative districts – the baltic triangle.
only a ten minute walk from the city centre, this area has so much to offer however nothing to bring people to the area for more than one night, this is where ‘shed’ fits in.
a unique hostel experience which encourages exploration and discovery within the building itself but also the city on a whole.

the bright hostel doors are inspired by shipping containers with each colour depicting the colour scheme within the room.
the reference to shipping containers not only links to the warehouses original dockland routes but also has CONNOTATIONS with the intended users – travellers as both are transported around the world.
