Botel (boat hotel) of the Lakes, a green holiday in the blue Land of seven lakes.
The development of the project is splitted in two phases:
Launch in Porto Ceresio and start up go live
Botel used as temporary office and show-room
Commercialization and internationalization
Botel deployed in other places, introduce other 5 units
Installation of a floating pier with its anchor (though two metallic poles) of a “vessel” with off-grid prototype function for the future creation of a complete floating hotel.
Zero energy modular block composed by:
Floating platform with metallic structure and floating PVC
Essential building with iron-glass-wood structure
Transparent movable cover for evapotranspiration protection
CLOSED CIRCUIT AND ZERO IMPACT OUTSIDE NETWORK PLANTS
Independent off-grid power supply with storage batteries and with remote management and cloud datalogger
24 volt low voltage internal / external LED lighting
220 service inverter for sockets
Photovoltaic panels in coverage
Innovative horizontal wind turbine and hybrid vertical wind turbine
Heating/cooling with heat pump powered by PV panels
ACS produced by PV panels integrated by heat pump
Waste water – management with ultrafiltration and evapotranspiration
Gray water recycling with potabilization through UV treatment for sanitary use
Water supply to dispensers with bottles
Perimeter intrusion with telephone dialer and luminous indicator
Control with webcam with recording and sending images in the event of an intrusion attempt
Eolo connection – Eolo telephony
Building Automation (home automation) for complete plant management
A sustainable holiday with zero impact, on floating off-grid units: Botel 2.0 is a philosophy of life, it is “the approach to territories on tiptoe”
Botel 2.0 will allow you to enjoy, on the floating pier, the “Food and Wine” Tourism with a network of popular restaurants
The Botel units are conditioned, heated and equipped with every comfort and are powered by photovoltaic, micro-wind and equipped with a closed-cycle water purification system – they do not produce any emissions into the environment.
You will reach by boat the most fascinating places of the lake, or you can visit the City of Lugano and the beautiful village of Morcote, or, with the reactivation of the old railway line, get to Varese. You can follow The paths that will lead you to Mount St. George (UNESCO heritage).
RESPECT OF THE TERRITORY
At the base of the project there is the idea of reversibility: the anthropization intervention proposed in water can be removed, bringing the territory back to its actual state.
Botel’s eco-friendly proposal also embraces the transport environment, with the reactivation of the railway line it will be possible to reach Botel from everywhere without any gas emissions into the atmosphere.
Through the use of App’s it will be possible to receive information about the proposals and offers of the territory with a special approach to the zero kilometer ones.
The choice of the village of Porto Ceresio, defined by skyscanner.it “one of the 20 nicest in Italy”, is that of succeeding in enhancing the place and making it appreciated for its the natural beauties
