Unveiled at Decorex 2015, the London-based Bert and May’s Big Box 2-bedroom is a 670-square foot modular home that strikes the perfect balance between high-end modern aesthetics and eco-friendly design performance. Factory built in only 14-weeks, Bert’s Box comes equipped with Crittal windows and doors, double-glazed steel facades, and insulated panels to keep inhabitants warm in the winter and protected from the blazing sun in the summer months.
Practicing minimalism doesn’t mean sacrificing style or comfort. In fact, there’s a movement toward tiny modular smart homes and its quickly becoming a worldwide phenomenon. From the solar-powered micro-home by Kodasema to the $139,000 stackable Kasita Home, smaller footprints provide greater flexibility – especially when it comes to location. You can easily buy property in Iceland and have a Koda home dropped in-between two picturesque mountains right outside of Reykjavik. Best part: if you’re concerned about reducing your carbon footprint, these energy-efficient abodes are equipped with a full arsenal of eco-friendly amenities.
