The Nautic Club’s modern small units stand out within the Abrantas natural park and traditional Portuguese architecture. They have a privileged view of the Tagus River and nearby green mountains. Helicopters and trucks were needed to get the wooden pods to the area, as they were prefabricated off-site to lower the overall cost and create minimal waste.

Measuring 290 square feett, the wooden pods were designed to be as self-sufficient as possible. They feature solar panels on the roof and their basic structure allows for future green tech implementations. Adaptable, modern and energy efficient, these tiny living units allow inhabitants to enjoy water sports and nature while causing practically no harm.
