This light weight ecohouse is made of aluminum, so it is easy to move from one place to another. This also means it can be recycled once the house is no longer useable. It is adaptable to many climates, it insulates and against heat, and is corrosion and fire resistance. These houses are estimated to last 50 years while still being structurally durable.
The house is small, measuring in at 480 square feet (43 square meters), with floors of wood laminate. There is a fairly open floorplan, with a bathroom, kitchen, a living room, and a dining area that doubles as a bedroom. It has many skylights and full-height sliding doors to provide natural lighting, while built-in LED lights are there for night time.
As for solving the problem of the city’s real estate prices and overcrowding, these pod houses can be stacked together to form a skyscraper.
