Transportable House ÁPH80, via Ábaton

Don’t be fooled––this cement structure may look like a simple garden shed, but turn it 180 degrees and it becomes a tiny, sustainable work of art.

Designed by Spanish architecture firm Ábaton, the 290 square foot home was created with three principles in mind: wellbeing for its inhabitants, environmental balance, and simplicity. Through the floor to ceiling windows, you can catch a glimpse of the interior which includes a living-room/kitchen, a full bathroom, and double bedroom. The best part, however, is that the entire home is constructed using recycled materials and can be transported by truck and assembled in a single day! According to Ábaton’s website, the cost of Transportable House ÁPH80 begins at 32.000 €.
