Sabatical home

architecture

October 2013

Travel around the world experiencing the most extreme climates: heavy rainfall, scouring heat, freezing cold or tornado wind speeds.

With this moveable house you can experience a range of extreme climates around the world. No matter how hard it rains, how strong the winds are or how hot or cold it may get, this house can withstand it all.

This sabatical home can withstand the most extreme climates around the world. It is meant to be used anywhere where you are able to take it.

It’s shape protects from strong winds and falling objects during tornados. The thick concrete shell helps to keep heat and rain outside. An additional pack of insulation helps to keep the heat in.

Only the minimal needs are present in this tiny home. Therefore it is easier to transport this container sized home. Moreover, the sabatical should be focused on the climate and place you may go to by using two large hatches that function as extra sheltered outside space.

Two chimneys help ventilate the home using natural draft of warmer air. It is also possible to use a small fireplace to enhance draft.
