Ecocapsule is a portable house offering an unmatched dwelling experience. With its immense off-grid life span, worldwide portability and flexibility it is suitable for a wide range of applications: from an independent research station or a tourist lodge to an emergency housing or a humanitarian-action unit.

Small, sleek, and shaped like an egg – the Ecocapsule is the latest in tiny home living from Bratislava-based architectural studio, Nice Architects.

Powered by a retractable wind turbine and solar panels, the Ecocapsule allows for two people to enjoy complete off-the-grid living for up to a year.

It’s no bijou living – the Ecocapsule can comfortably house two people in its 8 square meters (86 square feet) of well-designed space.

“The biggest challenge was to integrate all the different technologies into the small body of the pod and still have some space left for people,” said Nice Architects, speaking to Bored Panda.

With the facility to collect rainwater, the Ecocapsule has all the modern conveniences of a normal house. There’s a built-in kitchenette with running water, flushing toilet and a hot shower included. “The water reservoir has overflow valve, so if the tanks are full, they won’t accept any more water. But that is a rare case,” said Nice Architects.

Set to begin shipping in 2016, Nice Architects envision the use of the Ecocapsule as modern camping suites, research stations or even as emergency residences. Currently, it’s not clear how much this pod will set you back, but prices are due to be released later this year.
