A tranquil getaway in some of the most stunning locations on our planet where you can relax by listening to the song of mother nature. Districthive's Colony is a five star space for humans to recharge and connect with breathtaking nature in luxury without giving up comforts and technology.

The Colony

The "Colony", a tiny house Pod hotel we call podtel is the world's first truly autonomous living space that can colonise any terrain. It requires no public services to function by making its own water, electricity and waste treatment. We can park in spaces where construction is not possible.

A.I. Powered

It is completely self-sustaining, self-sufficient, fully equipped and mobile phone APP controlled: from entry, lighting, temperature, aroma, sound, TV and concierge to Artificial Intelligence powered energy management. Everything is connected.


Climate change is a real threat so we went completely offgrid and green. Our proprietary technology makes our own water, electricity and waste treatment without plugging into local services. The colony is carbon neutral and can operate for 4 days without sun on solar charged batteries.
