With his Pop-up Hotel initiative, digital entrepreneur Thomas D’hooge wants to create spaces to slow down, to stop and smell the proverbial roses. Last summer, he set up camp in the Bulskampveld in Bruges with a number of ‘tiny houses’. These 15-m2 living spaces each contain a compost toilet, a shower, a kitchen, two seating areas, a two-person bed, storage space and sometimes even a rooftop terrace. In short, they perfectly combine sustainability with optimum use of space. Furthermore, each tiny house was accompanied by one of our tools for togetherness. Needless to say, we had to have a talk with him.
