This egg-shaped cabin was designed by ‘Nice Architects’ to serve as a versatile, off-grid residence that in theory can be installed just about anywhere. The Ecocapsule is intended to ‘comfortably house two adults’ fits into a standard international shipping container for worldwide distribution.
Environmentally friendly energy generation lies at the heart of the Ecocapsule concept and it has been designed to gather energy from multiple renewable sources. The small dwelling can draw on both wind and solar energy from its built in 750W turbine and 2.6m2 solar array, and this power is stored in a 4200Wh battery reserve for a more reliable electricity supply. The domed roof also collects rainwater run-off which is then filtered within the structure.
