HOK Toronto's cross-disciplinary team presented 'Driftscape' to satisfy the whims of the modern nomad. It is an integrated response leveraging emerging transportation technologies to transform the hotel room into the primary vehicle of travel - thus capable of providing 360 degree views during it's untethered excursions. The 'Oasis' provides docking capabilities for multiple 'Driftcrafts' where users can enjoy communal hospitality and amenities.
The underpinning opportunity lies in the ability to touch down on sites that are traditionally inaccessible. By leaving minimal impact on sensitive environments, Driftscape helps preserve the integrity and authenticity of the experience.
