Moliving Inc. Prepares to Launch First Energy Positive Resort in North America
Moliving at Hurley House is set to debut this year in New York’s Hudson Valley and with it comes North America’s first energy-positive eco-resort. The resort will be comprised of 60 mobile hotel suites—designed and engineered by the brand’s in-house design team—scattered through an idyllic swathe of New York’s Hudson Valley.
Owing to their modular design, the mobile hotel rooms are designed to be easily deployed and relocated with minimal impact on the environment. In addition, the buildings themselves are constructed to have ultra-efficient operations, without sacrificing the cozy, natural luxury each one embodies.
“Our goal is to redefine travel by combining unmatched luxury and innovative experiences with sustainability and technology, all while delivering an uncompromised level of service,” says Hanna Bem, head of sustainability at Moliving. “Moliving aims to provide amazing incomparable experiences while reaching the goal for net zero travel.”
The Modular Design Allows Each Suite to Be Deployed to Some of the Most Scenic Areas
Totaling 45 feet in length with 400 square feet of indoor coverage and 120-square-foot dual decks, the units are designed to allow as much engagement with the natural landscape as they do with their interior designs. This is best exemplified in the wooden materials used throughout, which are meant to complement the earthen tones of their destinations.
Inside, an oversized skylight crowns the spa-inspired bathroom, offering rarified views of the skies above. The bedroom will also come equipped with either a king or two twin beds, depending on preference. Energy harvested from rooftop panels will help power these deployable escapes, while graywater recycling technology will help greatly reduce water consumption.
While pictures reference a solitary unit perched upon an overlook, the units can also be joined with one another to form small communities or multilevel retreats in the wild.
Beyond Hurley House, Moliving is pursuing several partnerships with East Coast properties through 2022. Collaborations with getaways in California, Colorado, Nevada, and European locales like Portugal and Italy are also in the works.
