micro compact home

Another look into the future of shedworking with the micro compact home [m-ch] from architect Richard Horden. It's a lightweight compact building, a 2.6m cube, in which you can live as well as work. It has a timber frame structure with anodised aluminium external cladding, insulated with polyurethane and fitted with aluminium frame double glazed windows. A eco-friendly version is available powered by pv solar cells and a small wind generator mounted on the roof. Inside are two beds, shower and a kitchen. The design has various inspirations including a Japanese tea-house. For more information, go to the interesting site here.
