With online services like Airbnb, Couchsurfing, and others making it easier for travelers to experience the authentic living environments of homes and apartments in the cities they visit (rather than that of hostels or hotels,) 'Suite for ten' is a private residence design meant to encourage home-sharing. From Spanish architects Egue y Seta, the private residence in Barcelona's Eixample neighborhood can sleep up to ten people without the need for a sleeping bag, and its kitchen and living room areas are also both configured to maximize space and encourage large social gatherings.
Altogether, the space can easily host 30 people during a gathering, making it ideal for a city like Barcelona where backpackers, lost souls, and others tugged around by their wanderlust are constantly accruing. Suite for ten would be just like a hostel if it weren't for its lush comfort, modernist, open concept layout and homey feel.
Egue y Seta understand that today's young travelers prefer a more authentic city experience, and have brought that together with Suite for ten.
