The Living Roof is a new ecological urban retreat by adNAU. The mobile house condenses its inhabitants needs and activities into a compact and self-sustaining capsule, it could be used as an alternative to hotel rooms or as a temporary residence for multi-city dwellers, the Living Roof project exists as individual suites spread throughout the city.
This kind of alternative housing is designed as a completely self-powered capsule that could be placed on the roofs of buildings. It has an ultra-insulated shell and regenerative systems allow the Living Roof to exist largely off the grid. Its sensuous form feed wind into mini-turbines at each end, while funneling rainwater to collectors. Integrated photovoltaic cells also help to make the Living Roof one of the world’s greenest structures.
