A portable hotel room without compromises
Sustainable but luxurious, practical but attractive, modular & portable but still affordable.
The Spa version is a simplified version of the Hideaway with two large arch shaped doors. There are no electricity or water facilities. It does come with an integrated solar powered fan and a Panaroma window.
The Explorer version has modular interior walls which enables you to create practically any space you’d like: an office, meeting room, yoga area. The possibilities are endless. Two integrated solar powered fans create a circulair air stream, supply fresh air in a very efficient manner. A door with automatic door lock can be opened and closed with your mobile phone.
The Voyager version is the most extensive Hideaway. The Voyager has several luxury features: a separated bathroom with rainshower, separated toilet area with a dedicated solar powered air fan, a skylight roof, panorama window and walk-in closet. Furthermore the Hideaway contains interior designs designed by HappyGreen.
We love to think without limits. There is no status quo. Outside of the box is where the exciting stuff happens.
Programmers, engineers, designers. We collaborate and create together. In small dedicated teams, we think and do Big.
Sharing one vision: To transform crazy ideas into reality and improve the world in small steps by doing so.
Discover and enjoy Earth’s unique places in a sustainable manner
The world we live in is incredibly beautiful. There are many stunning and unique locations to visit. We would like to enable you to experience these places responsibly.
We would like for everyone to experience beautiful places on earth in a responsible and sustainable manner. Therefore we develop concepts which minimize negative social, economic and environmental impacts. We strive to generate greater economic benefits for local people and enhance the well-being of host communities.
A spacious hotel room designed to resist any climate extremes: From extremely high or low temperatures to hurricane winds & earthquakes. Featuring a panorama window, starlight roof, walk-in closet and rainshower, it does not compromise on luxury.
Running 100% on solar energy and solar charged refurbished battery packages sourced from decommissioned Dutch power plants. The concept is built from easy to recycle materials with low carbon foot prints.
Easy and quick assembly
Setup without the use of any machinery. Built in 2 days by 2 people without any construction knowledge.
Place anywhere in the world
Transportable on just a couple of pallets, or even in all separate modules transportable by foot! Multiple setups for different environments and purposes.
Modular & transportable
Every modular part is easy to handle and weighs less than 35 kg, which makes it even portable by car, a rowing boat, and by foot with a cart. The most beautiful places are usually off the beaten track. Creating normal resorts and hotels in these places destroys a significant amount of the direct environment because of use of heavy machinery. Transportation in small modular parts and assembly by hand leaves the environment unscaved.
HappyGreen is a collective of creators from all kinds of backgrounds: From programmers to engineers, and from designers to craftsmen. From our headquarters in the center of Eindhoven, the Netherlands, we collaborate and create together, all over the world.
Our vision can be summarized in 4 words: Happy People, Green World.
This means every concept we design and develop together, has to adhere to 3 short principles:
It needs to be sustainable
It needs to be innovative
It needs to make people smile
