N240 Cabins are ideal living amongst the elements while leaving a minimal impact on nature

Eco house holidays built for the nomads

Contemporary wooden modules become the perfect replacement for tents in remote locations

Modular eco housing becomes a holiday trend for the nomads

Contemporary wooden modules become the perfect replacement for tents in remote locations
Glamping has slowly been taking over camping for a few years now. There are, still, bonfires and marshmallows on sticks, but gone are the days when remote holidays were inconvenient and aesthetically unpleasant. The modern-day nomads get to enjoy fully modern-day suites, each clad with wooden walls, a large glass window and its own electricity, minus the frills of a luxury hotel. When one is surrounded by nature, the bare minimum comfort becomes gratifying.
Like an IKEA furniture, each module is transported to its location and then assembled by hand. The panels and the rest of its construct are made to fit in place, brilliantly designed by the Barcelona-based In-Tenta, a company who took module kits to a whole new level. One might be surprised at the results—the N240 boasts of its own sundeck and a panoramic view from its double bed. Tenzo easily replaces the need for a trailer house; it fits a family of six with its 40 square metre area, complemented with a patio and an outdoor bar under the sunshade sails. The phenomenal interior is lodged with a complete kitchen and a large living room for lazy hours.

The curvier shapes are more fascinating—the Drop Pod, for one, is a cylindrical suite with an edgy design, outfitted with a cosy room and a shower deck. Drawing inspiration from natural shapes, the Drop Eco-hotel mimics a capsule and is built with a skylight and spherical bubble windows.
Replacing the need for a tent, the units come in various sizes to accommodate specific crowds. Other than its aesthetic extravagance, these luxury modules are made to reduce the ecological footprint. All Dropboxes are inlayed with timber, with exteriors clad with natural wood or composite panels of cement—a low-maintenance material that is non-toxic and impenetrable with water. Now that’s a perfect idea for camping; a balance of comfort and sustainability, whether one is lodged atop wintry cliffs, in the middle of a forest, or a beach-side escape. in-tenta.com/modular-suites
