Futuristic Capsule House Takes Luxury Eco-Hotels on the Go



Cabin Drop XL 7

Merging futuristic visuals with rustic environments, the Cabin DROP XL capsule house by Barcelona-based IN-TENTA is an environmentally conscious luxury getaway that can be placed virtually anywhere, and removed without leaving a trace. A larger version of the company’s organically-shaped removable hotel room, the DROP XL is a concept that “fits between a caravan and a permanent room in a traditional building.”

This portable eco-hotel is made of lightweight materials so it can be installed in a wide variety of terrains and transported to all sorts of remote natural locations such as forests, beaches and mountains. The prefabricated wood and steel module is specially designed to be installed with a minimum impact on the site, with a base that’s elevated off the ground on adjustable steel legs.

Bubble windows at the ends of the central cylindrical tube fill the structure with natural light, and can be opened to remove the barrier between indoors and out. A skylight running the entire length of the pod offers even more daylight, and thin photovoltaic solar films on the roof can be combined with wood siding to generate power.

Whereas the original DROP measures 25 square meters, the XL comes in at 30. A lounge area converts to a bedroom at night, and a bathroom offers a toilet, shower and tub. Additional modules can be added for kitchens and other facilities.
