Swimarium™ 3D | © 2014 OVA Studio Ltd.

You have certainly been to a swimming pool before, maybe to a planetarium too... Now hold your breath for the SWIMARIUM™ 3D.

Great Barrier Reef... Galapagos...Tiger Beach... Palau... Bali... Fidji... French Polynesia...Maldives... The Bahamas... Where do you want to swim today ? The Swimarium™3D will take you into your dream diving spot. In One click.

With all its boundaries made out of glass under which LED screens are broadcasting live (or recorded) imagery, you can choose your favourite diving spot reef amongst a selection of the best ones in the world, the Swimarium™ underwater cameras live feed network will provide you with the first of its kind underwater entertainment experience.

Not thrilling enough? Now, put on your 3D goggles (OVA Studio first) and enjoy the show. The cameras and the screens will be filming and broadcasting in 3D, on demand. Imagine the effect of swimming surrounded by a school of jacks... And if you dare, seeing some sharks approaching you.

Diving with whales, dolphins, would now be possible from home, and thanks to the hydrophones, you will hear their relaxing singing too... Above water the same technology would display on a dome your favourite island/nature spot.

The Swimarium™ could be private but also public, as part of a theme park attraction, being used by diving schools to train under relatively real conditions and situations. It will also spread the global consciousness and awareness of the rare and fragile beauty of our oceans and reefs biodiversity by giving anyone the chance to experience it round the corner.

The experience could be extended to other types of environments, just imagine what it would be like to swim in space surrounded with outstanding images of NASA's Hubble, or above Sahara desert dunes... Feeling the 0 gravity yet?

At this stage of development we wonder if a visionary individual, TV channels, like Discovery or National Geographic, or after their incredible work with maps/street view/treks street view/Great Barrier Reef panoramic images, Google Inc. would be interested to develop the Swimarium™ live feed with us and bring this next generation entertainment to reality.

Who's jumping in ?

Fresh from the sky:

Hive-Inn™ City Farm is a modular farming structure where containers are designed and used as farming modules and acts as an ecosystem where each unit plays a role in producing food, harvesting energy and recycling waste and water.

The idea of this ecosystem is to bring farming down-town and grow fresh produces near their urban consumers. Containers can be owned or rented by major organic brands, local restaurants or even serve as private local gardens / kitchen gardens. They can also serve educational purposes for the neighbouring schools.
Containers can be taken out, plugged-in or replaced to switch usage from farming to hotel rooms, service apartments and offices...etc.

The Hive-Inn™ structure shows here another aspect of its possible uses (see Hive-Inn™ Hotel) and demonstrate its versatility.

We chose New York City as an iconic landing site for the first Hive-Inn™ City Farm, near the U.N. headquarters to symbolize the world-wide adaptability and versatility of this concept.

Hive-Inn™ is a Hong Kong trademark and a Hive-Inn Ltd a Hong Kong start-up company that is going to handle its related businesses.

We are looking for partners worldwide to invest and/or develop the first prototype with us.

Official statement: Hive-Inn was our entry for the Radical Innovation Awards 2014 but was not selected for the second stage which is happening now. We don’t want to spark any controversy here and totally respect the jury’s decision.
Our only intention here is to share widely this new concept :) 
Enjoy your Stay !

OVA Studio Ltd. latest project:
HIVE-INN: A Hotel where branded container rooms travel as well... Enjoy your stay!
(Radical innovation awards 2014)

This hospitality competition brief was clear : "Bold new thinking + problem solving + beautiful design + revenue generating ideas".

Welcome to HIVE-INN, a hotel structure that allows container rooms to travel in and out!

Pushing the idea, we found that creating a link between famous brands, container fit-out, and HIVE-INN operators could be a winning scenario in which greater experience for the customer could meet with more exposure for the brands, at a less cost for the operator.

We approached the idea under various angles, from design, to financial, to customer / brand experience.

As possible scenarios, we developed two container room designs for Ferrari and Alexander McQueen.
