The concept of modular hotel spaces is on the rise in the hospitality space, and Moliving Inc. seeks to continue this disruptive trend by debuting its first model unit at the forthcoming Hurley House resort in New York’s Hudson Valley. Part of its modular concept, the mobile hotel room is designed and engineered in house, allowing it to be deployed and relocated with minimal impact on the environment.
“The traditional hotel development model has proven its success for generations. Now, lifestyle habits and travel behaviors have greatly shifted. We are spearheading the change with our mobile units and proprietary technology to continue to adapt,” says Moliving founder and CEO Jordan Bem. “Moliving is accommodating by design, its flexibility feeds the desire to roam freely helping the industry to embrace the nomadic, adventure-seeking traveler of today, who still wants all the benefits of the traditional five-star accommodation.”
A Modular Design Allows the Luxurious Space 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 Moliving Units are designed to allow as much engagement with the exterior locales they inhabit as they do with their interiors. This is best exemplified in the wooden materials used throughout, meant to complement the earthen tones of its destinations.
Turning it’s gaze then to the heavens, the spa-inspired bathroom will feature a massive skylight to frame picturesque views. The bedroom will be equipped to accommodate a king bed or two twin beds as well.
Each unit will be able to either stand alone or come together in communities, forming multilevel retreats in the wild thanks to a custom chassis build. Energy harvested from rooftop panels will then help power these deployable escapes, while greywater recycling technology will support a reduction in water consumption.
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 in the works.
