District Hive - Futuristic Off-Grid Pod In The Gorafe DesertDistrict Hive  

The ever-changing hotel scene innovates at an unprecedented pace. Its latest novelty is the autonomous podtel. District Hive is a state-of-the-art luxurious capsule that's the first of the many Podtel Colony hotels to be built worldwide.

The module was developed by the Spanish firm Districthive, and its bold aim is to revolutionize the way we think about hotels.

Moreover, it's part of an eco-movement to respect nature and leave no trace while making previously unhabitable and remote locations accessible.

Location: Gorafe  Spain  West Europe

District Hive is placed in one of these places at a stunningly wild spot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the region of Andalucia.

The intelligent pod can survive in the harshest environments, completely off-grid, as long as there is sun every four days.

That's how long the batteries will store the sun's energy and run the vital functions of the pod; create its own water and filter it, produce electricity, maintain a perfect temperature, and run its wastewater management.
