Meander Hostel is a popular brand for the young and hip crowd in Taipei. With their first hostel in Ho Chi Minh City, our team was given the task to design and manage the building of the public spaces, restaurants, and other amenities.
The challenge for this project was the timing of it as well as the stage at which we had to take over, especially when it is being designed and built during the shutdown from COVID-19 pandemic throughout Vietnam.
Even though this is a hostel, it can also be considered by many as a 3 or even a 4-star hotel. The unique aspect of Meander is the common shared space as well as its focus on delivering the most unique experiences for young visitors.
We wanted to make sure that the unique and out-going business concepts of Meander get translated into the design of the space.
