About Mark

I'm currently working on a new project - a 21st century budget hotel chain concept.

Value proposition:

1. Good night's sleep on comfortable mattress
2. Hot shower
3. Fast wifi
4. Convenient downtown location

The rooms are designed very small, bunk beds style but still with individual privacy, and depending on room type comes with either ensuite bathroom or shared communal bathrooms. Potential target customers are cost-conscious travellers for both leisure and business. I also want to focus on sustainability: low-energy, low-carbon, low environmental impact best practices.

Each bed includes:

1. LED light
2. USB and international power-charging stations
3. Small slide-down table for resting tablet or laptop while on bed
4. Towel rack
5. Hooks for hanging clothing
6. Backstand for lying against while reading/working on bed
7. Secure luggage storage under bed

Eventually, I would like to develop an app for this concept so that booking, payment, check-in and check-out can all be completed via smartphone. And maybe bundling extra services in as well such as laundry, fast food delivery, bike rentals etc..

I'm looking for anyone with the following:

1. An interest and ability to further develop this concept with me
2. Skills/experience in industrial design, interior design, architecture, hospitality, and IT.

Would be happy to meet over a coffee or beer to discuss further. I'm in NYC until end of November 2015.

Thanks for reading!
