T3Arc的建筑师Alfredo Raymundo CanoBriceño说：“目标是建造一家具有成本效益的酒店，为Tepoztlnn旅游业提供服务，同时为该地区提供全新的概念。
设计师的灵感来自于安德烈亚斯·斯特劳斯（Andreas Strauss）在2006 年建造德国Despark酒店的回收管道。他们在TuboHotel的设计中说，他们选择将三个房间叠加起来，提供更多迷人的景观，同时充分利用土地。
Keen to create a hotel that respects nature, Mexican studio T3Arc transformed giant recycled tubes into cozy sleeping chambers.
Located near Tepoztlán, in an area offering studding views of the Tepozteco Mountains, the TuboHotel integrates its environmental setting into the design. The layout of the tubes has been based on the topography of the land.
With 20 module-like rooms, each located in a recycled tube, guests are given their own private chamber for the night. The tubes are 2.44m high and 3.5m in diameter, adapted inside with the bare essentials: elevated bed, reading light and curtains over the entranceway.
‘The objective was to construct a cost-effective hotel that lends service to the tourism of Tepoztlán, while offering a totally new concept to the region,’ says architect Alfredo Raymundo Cano Briceño of T3Arc.
The designers were inspired by Andreas Strauss’ use of recycled tubes in building Germany’s Desparkhotel in 2006. They say in the TuboHotel’s design, they opted to stack the rooms in groups of three, offering more stunning views while taking advantage of the land.
