Compact solar home gives new meaning to ‘modular’ prefabs 

This design innovation by SystemDesignStudio promises a self-sufficient modular living system. The basic concept consists of a module which meets the daily living needs of an ordinary household: it is a livingspace with three stand-alone units: storage, bathroom and kitchen.

The space unoccupied by these three units can be used as livingroom, bedroom or other. All three units can be moved by means of a rail system allowing the user to personalise their home.

Other modules can be added both vertically and horizontally to the basic module allowing additional living quarters according to the needs of the users. The modules include systems that allow easy connection to an urban area net. Additionally, they contain a number a number of ecological systems making them self-sufficient or requiring only limited services from the urban area net.

These include solar panels providing the necessary energy for internal led based illumination and/or to provide hot water. Rainwater can be collected via an adapted system on the roof. This can be used for sanitary use. A container is also maintained here for use in growing nutritional plants to the benefit of the household.
