Through the incorporation of lightweight, tensile and inflatable structures, along with further investigation of climbing equipment, and techniques the hostel not only provides a unique experience where the inhabitants are immersed in the environmentally protected site without ever coming in contact with the ground themselves, but also provides opportunities for a relationship between architectural space and inhabitation. This dialogue enriches the experience of the occupants within the hostel as it establishes a negotiation between not only the occupants themselves but also between the occupants and the building; through inhabitation they mould and reform the architectural space.
