스스로 지속 가능한 저에너지 이동형초소형 주택 '에코캡슐'


이전에 건축회사인 디자인 스튜디오 나이스&와이즈에 의해 고안된 '에코캡슐'은 작은 달걀 모양의 형태로 저에너지 이동형 초소형 주택이다. 에너지 효율이 높으며 두 명의 성인을 편안하게 지낼 수 있다., 수돗물을 제공하는 빌트인 주방이 특징이다. 이 구조에는 또한 건조하고 분리되는 화장실, 뜨거운 샤워기, 접이식 침대, 그리고 연구 장비를 위한 충분한 저장 공간이 있다.

conceived by nice&wise, a design studio formerly known as nice architects, the ‘ecocapsule’ is a low-energy, mobile dwelling packed into a compact egg-shaped form. the energy-efficient pod hosts two adults comfortably, and features a built-in kitchenette offering running water. the structure also contains a dry, separating toilet, hot shower, a folding bed, and plenty of storage space for sporting or research equipment.

since original plans for the project were released in 2015, the ecocapsule has been a shortlisted entry of the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD of the same year. in 2018, the project was presented on the roof of the UNIQ building located in the center of bratislava with plans to market the series—limited to 50 pieces—to buyers in the U.S, japan, australia and the EU.
