When deliberating how much space a person really needs, not only to live but also to thrive, the creators of Wohnwagon came to a startling conclusion: 25 square meters or roughly 269 square feet. Following that realization, the Austrian-based company crafted a unique living experience that enables residents to be truly off the grid.
This is the Wohnwagon, a mobile home constructed completely from natural and recycled materials. According to a press release, the company is dedicated to creating the ideal living situation for each individual, down to how the Wohnwagon will be used, where it will be placed, and how self-sufficient the unit needs to be.
In an email exchange with Tiny Home Tour, a representative mentioned a few exciting features that enable autarky, or self-sufficiency, such as a "green filter on the roof that cleans the grey water from the shower and the sink and makes it re-usable," a "small central heating system that combines wood and solar energy," and other eco-conscious solutions. She concludes, "Our goal is to offer a normal living standard without any connection to the external grid."
One of the most surprising aspects of the Wohnwagon is how genuinely airy and spacious the interior feels, despite its square footage. Clean, minimalist decor keeps the space modern and bright.
The kitchen counters and cabinets offer ample storage space and plenty of room for both work and play.
A fold-out table next to the bed provides a larger dining surface, should you host guests.
There is also a pull-out mattress under the sleeping nook for extra accommodations.
Here is the view from the sleeping nook.
The bathroom features a mosaic motif, expertly complemented by a unique sink.
The toilet has a green filter, allowing the water to be reusable for independent living.
The painstakingly placed mosaic shower tiles mimic the flow of water as the design makes its way down to the floor.
Here are some artist renderings of the Wohnwagon for alternate views and the floor plan:
