Sharkey has pod hostel project under lock and key

24th September 2018 in Latest Projects
Sharkey has started work on the £3.4 million refurbishment and conversion of Edinburgh’s A-listed, former district court and cell block, repurposing it into a boutique ‘capsule hotel’ for operator Code Pod Hostel.

Situated in Edinburgh’s Parliament Square at the core of the Old Town Conservation Area, this revolutionary 20,000 sqft project involves historically sensitive structural alterations, manufacturing and installing 181 sleeping “pods”,  the conversion of former prison cells into 12 boutique bedrooms, construction of toilet and shower facilities and the creation of a bespoke reception area, breakfast room and support accommodation.  The existing layout of the six-storey Georgian building will be retained along with many original features, including rooms named after infamous former inmates.

CODE POD Hostel is an urban concept designed to give travellers a central location in a unique quality-sleeping environment.
