Hong Kong-based architect firm OVA Studios is giving a childhood classic a new twist with the Hive-Inn, an incredible hotel built out of recycled shipping containers.

The concept building features stacked bins that bear a strong resemblance to the popular game Jenga.

Like the game, the building is completely customizable. Each piece is removable and re-stackable, allowing the owners to change its look and feel at any time.

The Hive-Inn offers ample opportunity for corporate sponsorship.

Shipping containers could serve as billboards and brands could be given the chance to design the inside of a sponsored container.

The Hive-Inn was developed as an entrant for the 2014 Radical Innovation Awards.

The winner of the competition will be announced next month in Las Vegas.
