districthive: a capsule hotel set to conquer the world

 

DistrictHive® is a 100% self-sufficient and transportable capsule hotel (podtel®) located in granada’s gorafe desert in spain. the first of several modules to be placed in different parts of the world (to form a ‘podtel colony’), DistrictHive enhances the value of nature by accessing it without leaving a trace. since no local resources are consumed, the autonomous module has zero environmental impact on the area where it is placed.

 

the podtel, luxuriously equipped and with room for up to four people, is controlled by artificial intelligence and is entirely managed through an app. the 35 sqm building‘s design, developed by moho arquitectos, is divided into several spaces: a bathroom, a kitchen-living-dining room, a bedroom (one double bed and one hidden double bed), multifunctional modular cabinets and shelves, and a small and necessary installation room where all the technical equipment is concentrated. additionally, the module also has an open terrace for stargazing.

100% self-sufficient autonomous eco-hotel

 

created by portugal-based districthive LDA company and an international team of architects, interior designers and engineers, the capsule hotel has been designed from a multidisciplinary perspective and understands tourism in a sustainable, ecological and responsible way. the 100% self-sufficient and transportable module can be deployed on any terrain, even where construction is not possible. it is able to generate its own water from the air, its own electricity from solar energy, has enough energy to power it for four days without sun, has its own sewage management by transforming waste into ashes, and grey waters are filtered through two filtering processes so that the water serves as irrigation water. the complete autonomy of the module makes common and complementary services unnecessary, thus optimizing resources and ensuring a reduction in the carbon footprint.

 

‘a versatile construction with a focus on design the podtel is a fully industrialized construction that is offered finished, transported to the site and in a few hours is ready to be used,’ the company explains. ‘it does not touch the ground on which it sits, has no foundations and does not require any type of channeling, piping or sanitation. the support system developed has 6 legs that, like a spaceship just landed on mars, rest on the ground.’

DistrictHive is designed and conceived as the first of the so-called ‘podtel colony’, a new and innovative concept of autonomous high-end luxury accommodation that will be scattered in different parts of the world, all of them remote and with the most spectacular views and environments. ultimately, it is an extremely exclusive model that seeks to showcase the value of the landscape, finding those wonderful and special places to make them accessible for protected contemplation throughout the year. the ultimate goal is to provide guests with a unique tourist experience for the enjoyment and delight of all the senses.

 

the tourism of the future bets on artificial intelligence automation and the use of new technologies are essential for the development of the podtel. a mobile app controls all devices and provides information on remaining energy levels, solar production, temperature, water quality, and water production. it also controls, among other things, the opening of doors, interior odour, lighting, sound, TV, the purchase of food and drink on demand, or the temperature.
