The Fincube is a high-tech home with a small footprint – both in terms of size (~500 sf) and carbon emissions. The house is a one-bedroom residence, which is raised off the ground and supported by a pedestal structure.
The contemporary tiny house was originally designed by Studio Aisslinger and Josef Innerhof (a hotelier) as an experimental venture into eco-tourism; a retreat with a small impact on the surroundings, while still letting visitors experience the beautiful locations to their fullest.
The interior is orientated in a helical pattern, making the occupants travel in a circle through the kitchen, living area, bedroom and finally the bathroom. The entire home contains triple glazed windows throughout, offering 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. The house is clad with an exterior shade screen, helping to prevent over-heating during the summer while having a minimal impact on the exterior views. And if the existing passive and active design systems don’t meet your eco-criteria, it’s energy efficient features can be boosted further by the addition of a solar array to the roof.
The pedestal structure that supports the entire houses measures only 10-square-feet, whereas the entire home is approximately 500-square-feet – reducing the amount of physical space required for the foundation by a factor of 50! The home is designed to be easily dismantled, so it can be transported to a new site with minimum amount of effort. Lastly, just like the Soleta ZeroEnergy One, this is a smart-home, which can be controlled via a central touchpad.
