Tubohotel, a Recycled Concrete Tubing Hotel in Mexico

Tubohotel: Concrete Tubing Recycled Into Affordable, "All Tube" Hotel

I'm excited to present a post from one of my favorite sites, Treehugger! Here on TreeHugger we've already seen minimalist hotels made out of giant sections of concrete tubing. But who would have known concrete tubing could be actually made to look inviting, much less for travellers looking to stay in one of Mexico's more popular destinations? Located less than an hour away from Mexico City, Tepoztlan's Tubohotel is an affordable hotel that uses recycled concrete tubing for its rooms, a strategy employed by designers T3arc to build a hotel quickly and cheaply, without sacrificing the area's spectacular views.

According to ArchDaily, this hotel was inspired in part by architect Andreas Strauss' 2005 Das ParkHotel. However, Tubohotel's concrete modules add a touch of glass and comfort to allow guests a better panoramic view of the local mountain range, Sierra del Tepozteco. Legend has it that Tepoztlan is the birthplace of Quetzalcoatl, Mexico's ancient feathered serpent god.
