ÖÖD hotel rooms are designed for short-term accommodation and holiday housing. They require little effort to complete installation, as much as eight hours of work, and can be installed in any part of Estonia without needing any special permission. Its price-per-unit is approximately €65,000 and includes custom-built Estonian furniture.
Each unit can house two or three people, and fits in perfectly both with urban landscapes as well as the more rural options available. Built primarily from steel, insulated glass, and thermally treated wood, its interior has a bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom.
Home automation is built in as is floor heating and LED lighting. The installation of Internet connection, water, sewage, and electricity supply through off-grid solutions are currently being worked on for the future. The structure also has an LG heat pump in order to provide both heating and cooling.
The first unit was installed last fall, but the company has plans to expand its business to international markets in the following months.
The most interesting aspect of the design is that it allows the occupants to enjoy the views of the different locations where they can set up from the comfort and ease of the interior. Even then, it preserves their privacy, given that there is no visibility from the exterior to the interior.

For me, and I’m sure many people will agree, the old constructions have something very special. Maybe it’s that old flavor, that story they always have to tell or maybe that wonderful blend that is created when an old construction mixes with the modern. The result is really fantastic, isn’t it?
