What do tiny-houses and up-cycling have in common? Or railway history, staycations and a trip on the Orient express?
Today, hundreds of train carriages are left to rot on the rails once they are no longer fit for travelling. On the other hand, people are looking for more ecological and original ways to either live or spend their holidays / week end.
Déraillées aims to transform reformed train carriages into accommodations. We offer individuals looking for an environment-friendly house or hotels looking to expand their catalog a ready-made original concept. Order your carriage and hop on the adventure!
We started out with a team of eight from various backgrounds and fields of expertise in October 2015. In 2017, the team had been remodelled, but stayed strong and multidisciplinary.
This complementary skillset brought us to the Campus Création* finale in 2016. In 2016, we were also nominated for “most audacious pitch” in the Pitch ta Boîte competition.
Finally, thanks to Ateliers la Mouche, we had the chance to be part of the first exhibition cohort of the Lyon Architecture Biennale in 2017.
Due to our personal, student, and professional commitments, we decided to put Déraillées on hold. We would still be psyched to have your feedback, input or suggestions for the project. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us here!
*Campus Création is a Lyon located competition for early stages projects developed in the region. It runs for a year with diverse tasks for the teams to fulfil (business model canvas, business plan, client and partner prospect, etc.) and reunites the finalists for a pitch and presentation day. Its later seed equivalent is JEA – the start up statuses have to be in to enter this competition though
