Basic House Puts a Home in Your Pocket

 |  |  |  |  February 5, 2012


Basic House is a design from Barcelona designer Martin Azua. It couldn’t be more simple. It’s basically a lightweight balloon that you can carry with you in your pocket and use for shelter if you need it.

This design would be a great help to homeless people or those in a disaster area. It’s made from a metalized polyester material, so when you unfold it, it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun.

Just like that, you have an instant shelter. When you are inside, the material reflects your body heat to keep you warm. If you reverse it, the material will reflect the sun to keep it cooler inside. While it’s not likely to keep you from freezing to death in the wintertime, it’s still a simple and imaginative design.
