Solar Powered Sunset Idea House 2011

Solar Powered Sunset Idea House 2011

This is Sunset‘s Idea House, or Cargotecture, which was just on display recently during  Celebration Weekend in Menlo Park.  It’s a tiny living space of 192 square-feet, though there’s room to sleep up to four.  It’s also solar-powered and ultra-modern, yet the nine-year old container structure has visited dozens of countries and traveled more than a half million nautical miles.

The modern home was designed and fabricated by Seattle-based HyBrid, which offers a base model of the c192 Nomad from $59,500.  The 24′ shipping container has a galley kitchen, micro bathroom, and large openings for blended indoor, outdoor space.

HyBrid finished the structure with an exterior of primary yellow and Andersen windows and doors.  Inside, the kitchen features wood counters and simple, functional cabinets, while the bathroom has a dual-flush toilet, Duravit sink, and ceiling-mounted shower.  There’s also a sofa and fold-down bed.
