Ecocapsules, designed by Bratislava-based Nice Architects, is a new way of sustainable living. This small, sleek, a low-energy and shaped like an egg house is equipped with solar panels, a retractable wind-turbine, and a design that captures rain water. Ecocapsule allows for two people to enjoy complete off-the-grid living for up to a year in its 8 square meters (86 square feet). Inside, you’ll find a kitchenette with running water, a flushing toilet, and hot shower.
The Ecocapsule “is suitable for a wide range of applications,” write the designers, such as an “independent research station or a tourist lodge to an emergency housing or a humanitarian-action unit.”
Available for $86,000 each, a limited collection of 50 such egg-shaped green dwellings is up for pre-order with delivery in the first half of 2016. A display unit will be show during the Pioneers festival in Vienna on the 28th-29th of May.
