‘DROP eco-hotel’ designed by barcelona-based practice IN-TENTA creative design group, is one of the selected projects to be produced as a result of the contest organized by urban square + o-cults + ricardo bofill taller de arquitectura. it will be manufactured by urban square, an urban furniture and micro-architecture producer.

the proposal is a removable hotel ‘room’ inspired by organic shapes of nature suitable to be installed in natural locations. its main features are removable architecture, organic design and eco-friendly services. this portable micro-architecture is composed of modular wooden and steel elements and the structure is installed above the ground to avoid contact with the soil and minimally interfering with the unspoiled land continuing to grow underneath. the design incorporates the use of spherical transparent enclosures that can be completely opened and bring guests into direct contact with nature.

for the modern nomad, these eco-friendly ‘rooms’ are not only sustainable but surprisingly comfortable and perfectly integrated into the surrounding landscape,therefore DROP is suitable for everyone who has an inherent yearning for nature and wants no negative impact on the environment.
