INNOVATIVE HOMES: “OFF-THE-GRID CONTAINER HOME” IN NEW ZEALAND (VIDEO)

One of the major advantages of shipping container homes is that they can be constructed off site and transported to remote locations. That’s exactly what has happened with this spectacular home which has been built using a 40ft shipping container. Situated in the hills overlooking the ocean and with mountain views of the South Island in New Zealand, this home is simply breathtaking. It’s remote location has meant that off-the-grid living is essential and the home is powered by an impressive solar system.

Future Housing & Living: Off-Grid “Ecocapsule” – “Spectacular Innovation”

The Ecocapsule is an egg-shaped, mobile dwelling that utilises solar and wind energy. Sona Pohlova and Tomáš Žáček created the original design in 2014 for an American client “who had a big ranch where he didn’t have any infrastructure and he needed some living units for visitors”.

They didn’t win the project, but were published worldwide and received requests from people to buy it. They weren’t prepared for the reaction, but they spent 5 years turning their plans into a prototype.

Today they are selling their EcoCapsule – complete with shower and toilet, sleeping area for two, and kitchenette – to anyone looking to “stay in the nature for long time, for example scientists, photographers, rangers or extreme tourists” or someone interested in installing one on a city rooftop.

The pods are highly mobile: they can easily be pulled by a pickup truck or even airlifted by helicopter (for those rooftop needs). The units capture sun energy (PV) as well as their own rainwater (and grey and blackwater). There’s even an app-controlled smart-home system and sensors that help you monitor your energy and water use.
