A project by the artist-duo L/B - Sabing Lang (born 1972 in Bern), Daniel Baumann (born 1967 in San Francisco). Their biography literally is pages of art installations and projects that have been mapped all over the world.
Everland is a Hotel with only one room including a bathroom, a king-size bed and a lounge. The bouneous dimensioned room represents the subjective dream of a hotel: the architecture, the playful details, as well as the request to steal the golden embroidered bath towels. Basically all Everland guests were partaking in the project.
Also the concept for operating the hotel was defined by the artists. All facets are important constituents of the artistic idea: The room can be booked for one night only, the mini-bar is fully stocked and included in the price, breakfast is delivered to the door and a record collection stands at ones disposal.
Hotel Everland was first developed on invitation of the Curator Gianni Jetzer for the Exhibition concept "Everland" at the Swiss national exhibition in the year 2002. The Hotel was planned by L/B and built in Burgdorf.
It was then transported to Yverdon where it was located on the lake of Neuchatel for 4 months. After the end of Expo 02', the mobile pavilion was brought to Brugdorf and was placed on the factory roof at L/B studio.
From June 2006 until September 2007 the one room hotel was exhibited and run as a Hotel on the roof-deck of the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Germany.
As a last destination Hotel Everland moved to Paris from October 2007 until spring 2009. High above the city, with a view on the Eiffel Tower, it is installed on the roof of Palais de Tokyo. It was also possible to book the room for the night or visit it during the day.
A book about the project is available by Christoph Merian Verlag.
watched a giant crane being prepared to winch the prefabricated
green unit up from the back of a truck.
Guests paid 333 euros ($473) a night during the week and 444
euros at weekends, a comparable rate to other hotels in the chic 16th
arrondissement, with charges used to cover running costs.
Bye bye Paris - After 159 nights in Yverdon, 320 nights in Leipzig and finally 557 nights in Paris, the tour of Hotel Everland came to an end. L/B stated that the project was not a prototype. Painful as it is for those of us that never had the excitment of staying in the magnificent hotel/artistic blueprint, there will be no further hotels - "Au Revior"
Wow, that is crazy interesting. My fear of heights would have probably prevented me from partaking, but it looks like it was gorgeous!

Just found your blog, looking forward to reading more! Great post.
Wow this doesnt even look real to me! The view is amazing! x
I think it would make me nervous!
Stunning..As terrified as I am of heights, I think I could happily be in there right this minute. Would be too amazing to let my fears keep me from that glorious view and experience. Once again your posts continue to inpire me and educate me!!
Oh wow... I actually passed this the other day with my husband - pointed at it and joked.. "I wonder if someone lives there". He said it'd be a terrific view for an apartment but we had no idea it was actually a hotel. Thanks for clearing this up! A fascinating concept I must say! I wouldn't mind trying that out for a night or two..
