Ecocapsule

Over the years we have showcased several houses, retreats, weekend cabins, and pods, places to escape hectic city life and reconnect with nature. Our latest discovery was developed by Nice Architects, a self-sustaining portable house appropriately named Ecocapsule. The ecological pod, is equipped with a built-in wind turbine, roof-mounted solar panels, and a high-capacity battery, these off-grid capabilities allow you and a guest to enjoy the convenience of household facilities. Inside youŽll find plenty of storage space, a small kitchenette, working/dining place, a folding bed, toilet, and hot shower, all the luxuries of a hotel room that you can take into wilderness. First deliveries are expected in 2016.
