Perfect for travellers who like comfort.
Architectural Studio, based in Bordeaux, has developed a small portable house. The room is 22 square meters and was designed by the owner as a country residence.
The model was placed in Ustaritz, in the South-West of France.
The building itself is made in Bordeaux, and then transported to the desired location. The room was set into the ground using large screws that can hold all the weight.
We saw it as a house for the weekend where you can go family; it has two double beds, living room, small kitchen, tiny bathroom and technical room,
– said the owner of the building.
The building itself was made of pine and spruce plywood, which possess good sound insulation characteristics. Outside the room is lined with burnt wood, which will help to protect it from adverse weather conditions.
Large Windows let light into the interior, which features a wood-burning stove for heating. Also on the roof installed solar panels to provide the premises with electricity.
The toilet was installed a dry toilet, waste water from houses are cleaned, as French law is quite strict in this regard.
