Fakro International Design Competition Winner, 3rd Place

Self-sustainable micro-homes are becoming increasingly relevant for festivals, off-the-grid living, permaculture technologies, and showrooms. In this high-performance container, everything one could need in order to join the circular society is present: oven, rainwater collection, beehive, greenhouse, thermal mass. Meanwhile, localized microclimates contribute to temperature moderation, while well-isolated windows allow for optimized control of cross ventilation and thermal comfort. The jury appreciates the way the plan makes detailed connections between all required items and necessities, and fits it all in a box that seems to offer a very comfortable residence.
