Nice Architects, a young architectural studio based in Bratislava, Slovakia, has designed an egg-shaped and cozy micro-home that comes with solar panels, a retractable wind turbine and a battery.
The single person abode measures just 14.6 feet long by 7.4 feet wide by 8.4 feet tall and weighs 3,300 pounds. The tiny home is equipped with a tiny kitchen and dining area, a shower and flushable toilet, storage space and a foldable bed. The Ecocapsule can also collect rainwater.
The Ecocapsule has been designed to fit into a standard sized shipping container for transportation by truck, rail or ocean carrier.
Tiny houses can be used for humanitarian purposes, to house the homeless and as a cheap RV.
