DROP XL is a large version of the organically-shaped removable hotel suit DROP eco-hotel. The DROP modules are part of the large emerging trend in the field of modular microarchitecture, suitable for being placed wherever the heart desires and the land permits. They have been designed to be placed in a natural spot, and easily removed without any ecological damage as a consequence of its presence. The aim of DROP modules is to meet the growing demand for eco-tourism with customers that like travelling but don’t want to stay in usual hotels in usual places, and demand sustainable architecture and a high degree of design.

The design of the new module DROP XL also features multi-purpose uses: removable hotel room, cabin, pop-up events pod, singular architectural element... It measures 30 sqm (323 ft²) and can be customized for the client's requirements, like the addition of a Kitchen, in function of potential uses. DROP XL is off-site manufactured, and then road transported to their final location by truck.

Made with wood, steel and glass, this microarchitecture is specifically designed as a removable modular unit to be installed with a minimum impact on the environment. The structure's base is elevated from the ground, on adjustable steel legs, to minimize the contact with the soil and adapt to the irregular terrains. A notable feature of the design is the large bubble windows at the ends of the cylindrical tube. DROP modules offer a solution for both environmentally conscious use and smart interior design.
