30 June 2015 Reporter

It’s small, it’s sustainable, it’s shaped like an egg and it offers a revolutionary approach to housing.

It’s small, it’s sustainable, it’s shaped like an egg and it offers a revolutionary approach to housing.

The Ecocapsule provides off-the-grid, self-sufficient living for urban dwellers looking to downsize and live eco-friendly (see below).

The egg-shaped homes are powered by 2.6 square metre solar panels and a 750W retractable wind turbine, plus they’re designed to capture and store rainwater that is made drinkable by a built-in filtration system.

Featuring a bed, kitchenette, toilet and shower, plus a work/dining area, the Ecocapsule can house two people for a year off the grid.

These pods can be transported easily with a trailer, giving them the mobility and freedom to be placed almost anywhere.

The Slovakian architectural firm responsible for the Ecocapsule said customised pods will be available from the end of 2016.
