PACO Packs A Lot Into a Little

PACO is a tiny little cube, only 3 meters square (just slightly bigger than the Micro Compact Home) but complete with everything you need. It can hook up to the established service infrastructure or stand on its own with solar, wind, water recycling and bio-toilet.

The structure is relatively simple, and the cost starts at only 4,200,000 yen (US$ 47,122) for a basic shell, up to 6,300,000 (US$ 70,705) or US$657 PSF for a complete unit with kitchen, shower, bathroom and lighting.

it is designed by Jo Nagasaka and Schemata Architecture Office
