Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa rents out it’s penthouse as a trailer park. Teaming with Cape Town design studio Whatiftheworld, the hotel worked with local artists to decorate the 7 American Airstream trailers as two-person accommodations. The trailer park is situated around the hotel’s rooftop bar.
In addition to the concepts from “The Ballad of John & Yoko, adorned with a guitar and simple white interior, to Goldilocks and The Three Bears, which has a quaint storybook feel to it,” there’s a more local feel from the Afro-Funk trailer by Carla Soudien.
The trailer’s earthy colours set the tone for an African experience – minus the wildlife. Soudien was inspired by the street fashion of Cape Town and this is represented in her careful attention to texture.
What a great way to collaborate with local artists and create unique experiences for travelers! Not to mention the poetic nature of the project, where we think of trailers for traveling. Now, the trailers are permanently parked and made into housing for those same travelers. Each Airstream has a small garden, air-conditioning, and running hot and cold water. I want to visit! I’m so curious how the interiors are have been redesigned.
