5 Footway Inn

5 Footway Inn

5 Footway Inn is a boutique hostel chain in Singapore. Among other Asian designers, the owners have invited TA.LE to re-envisage some of their hostel rooms in our own ways. Our design took inspiration from the beautiful vent blocks and characteristic foldable iron gates seen at the back alleys of conserved shop-houses. The assemblage of these iconic elements within a hostel room creates an interesting juxtaposition that evokes a sense of familiarity that is local and Asian as the same time.
