Valencia-based firm Mano De Santo has proposed a plug-and-play room that could be easily transported and installed thanks to its , off-grid design. Dubbed the Punta de Mar Marina Lodge, the conceptual pavilion is a sustainable tourism initiative that targets low environmental impact. Powered with  energy, the Punta de Mar Marina Lodge would offer a private and luxurious experience on the water for two.



Unveiled last year, the Punta de Mar Marina Lodge is envisioned to house two levels spanning a total of 74 square meters in size. The ground floor — approximately 40 square meters — includes a small front terrace that opens to the bedroom, which overlooks views of the water through full-height glazing. The bathroom, technical equipment and storage are tucked in a unit behind the bed, while a small outdoor terrace is located in the rear. Guests can also enjoy access to the roof, where an open-air lounge with seating is located.




“Punta de Mar is a sustainable tourism initiative, since it does not generate waste because it is an installation of modules whose system is the ‘Plug & Go,’” the architects said in a project statement. The team also explained that the unit is integrated into its environment with low impact. The hotel can be easily relocated — it can be transported by land or sea — and can be enjoyed in an array of different settings for “unique and exclusive experiences.”





In addition to the off-site prefabrication of the unit that minimizes waste, the Punta de Mar Marine Lodge was designed to follow passive solar principles to reduce energy usage. Moreover, the indoor temperature, , alarm system and entertainment system can all be controlled remotely via the guests’ smartphones.
