Tiny homes gained popularity a couple of years ago, and since then they’ve cemented their place in the world of architecture. What started off as a cute little trend is now turning into a serious option for home spaces. And I do believe this will continue well in the future. They are a space-saving and eco-friendly living solution that reduces the load on Mother Earth. They’re simple and minimal alternatives to the imposing and materialistic homes that seem to have taken over. And if you love exploring tiny homes, as much as I do, then you’ve reached the right spot. Say hello to the Ecocapsule NextGen!
A few years ago Ecocapsule lived up to its promise of an egg-shaped off-grid tiny house! The original Ecocapsule was a major hit as it relied solely on solar and wind energy to power itself. And now Ecocapsule is back with a new and upgraded version called the Ecocapsule NextGen. The NextGen tiny home will feature the same egg-like form but with more space.
The size of the Ecocapsule NextGen has been increased. From 4.67m the home has been expanded to 5.2m, making it larger than the original version, but still maintaining a small and compact form. The original Ecocapsule featured a gull-wing door which has been replaced with a typical double glass door. The new door ensures that the home is more open to the outdoors, and is also easier to produce. The NextGen home is intended to be transported using a truck, trailer, or container.
The interiors of the Ecocapsule NextGen will feature more storage space and an extra window. It accommodates a living area with a sofa that can be converted into a double bed, and a table that can be stowed away. The tiny home also houses a small kitchen space and a bathroom. The array of solar panels in the home will also be larger, so it can provide more power to run off-grid. It will also feature a wind turbine and a battery system.
“We are excited that Ecocapsule has attracted many customers, and, thanks to their feedback, we have the opportunity to work on an improved generation and stay ahead of the competition,” said co-founder of Ecocapsule, architect Tomáš Žáček. “The most significant change in the product design will be the installation of a large panoramic window, which will bring people even closer to nature.”
