Minneapolis Hostel

Studio Grey as Architects

This was a remodel of an existing Hostel building in Minneapolis, Minnesota that hadn't seen a renovation in many years and did not meet accessibility codes. It needed all new windows, common space amenities, room and bathroom updates, and lighting replacements throughout. The goal at Minneapolis Hostel was to create a budget friendly but impactful refresh on this 1900's home in South Minneapolis, which sits adjacent to the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

This project challenged the design team to use thrift stores to their advantage. The interior evolution went from drab & dark to moody & fresh; an environment with unique accessories that spark a conversation and relate back to the site's Midwestern roots.

North Bay Development, DJR Architecture, Frana Companies
