186-Square-Foot Solar Home That Can be Folded Flat and Transported Anywhere

Do you need a small, sustainable and mobile living space? The POD-Idladla is all that and more.


This super-compact home for two features all you need – a modular nano design that’s powered by solar energy, and can even be customized off-site to your specific preferences. It can ship flat-pack and it can be quickly assembled on site.

It has a pitched roof that maximizes solar potential. The white and mint green-painted facade reflect the sun to keep the interior cool while multiple openings and operable concertina doors provide natural ventilation.




“The interior, mostly painted white and punctuated by pops of color and wooden surfaces, features tall ceilings and includes an upper loft level accessible via ladder. The kitchen, office, bathroom, and dining/living area are located on the first floor, while the bed is placed in the loft. Storage compartments line the walls and folding furniture maximizes the use of space. The POD-Idlala is currently on show at the Nirox Foundation Sculpture Park and will soon be available for sale in South Africa. Price estimates put the tiny mobile home between R200,000 to R700,000 (USD$15,765 – $55,175) depending on the amount of customization,” reports Inhabitat.
