The mini-house fashion continues to add examples all over the planet and some are curious to say the least. One of the most striking alternatives that have emerged recently is the one proposed by the designer Arun Prabhu.

It is SOLO 01, a portable mini-house that is built on a three-wheeled motorcycle and with recycled materials. Therefore, and in addition to having reduced dimensions, it is a sustainable tiny house.

This tiny house has been designed with the aim of providing a temporary housing solution in India and has all the rooms of a house: the kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom, the hall, the terrace and even a specific area for work. All spaces are open to gain amplitude and also take advantage of the height of the ceiling to maximize every inch. It is intended primarily for travellers, artists, street vendors and people with a nomadic lifestyle, as well as for the homeless or as an emergency shelter in the event of a catastrophe.

In addition to the interior organization, this tiny house has a solar panel and a water tank that allows it to be efficient and is made with recycled materials that come from old buses and demolished buildings, which reduces the cost of construction. It also has ventilation that allows the tiny house to adapt to different terrains and weather conditions and has a detachable frame, allowing it to be 'hooked' onto other vehicles or placed on dry land.
