Tiny houses are in rage these days, as they work as eco-friendly and affordable housing solutions for travelers and a plenty of homeless fellows around the world. You may find various travelers who want to spend some time in outdoors, but not at the cost of nature. So the trend of eco-tourism is rising worldwide. Depicting the same green design concept, a Portuguese firm has designed Ecocubo, a 7-square-meter micro house that is made of cork and can accommodate two persons comfortably. DesignBoom says that it contains kitchen, combined bathroom/toilet and a cozy sitting area that transforms into a sleeping area for quick optimal comfort, while leaving no impact on the environment.  

Made from sustainable materials, this modular cabin adapts to different locations and needs of users. It features cork architecture on both exterior and interiors to blend the structure with natural setting around. A glass door welcomes you inside the tiny cabin, where convertible furniture makes most out of the interior space, such as the sofa with built-in storage is transformes into a bed, while kitchen countertop conceals additional seats and dining table for guests.   

The bathroom area is hidden into the corner alongside the sitting area. The tiny house sits over a wooden deck that provides enough space to spend some time in the open-air. As seen in the video, it is a pre-fabricated home that is delivered directly to the construction site. Its build material is sustainable for sure, but still, questions like energy supply, water and waste management system remain unanswered as there is no information about the same at the manufacturer’s website.
