We’ve often wondered just how small you can really go when designing a tiny living space and the Solo 01 might be the answer.
Designed by India’s The Billboards Collective, the prototype project is a rickshaw-based micro-house that measures just 6 x 6 ft (1.8 x 1.8 m).ringing to mind the Elektro Frosch Pro, the Solo 01 is conceived as a micro-house, though you could just as reasonably call it a camper. It consists of a removable living area constructed from scrap metal that’s bolted onto a typical three-wheeled rickshaw.
“It is a utilitarian design of a compact 6 x 6 ft space into a portable/detachable housing at the back of a 3 wheeler auto rickshaw that can accommodate a solo individual like an artist, traveler, homeless people or even a small scale vendor,” says architect Arun Prabhu N G.An impressive number of features have been shoehorned into that tiny interior. The first floor, such as it is, includes storage space, a kitchenette, a toilet, and even a tiny bathtub. The mezzanine area hosts a bed and a little laptop table.
