The Clip-On Apartment: a Green Solution for Suffocated Living

a Green Solution for Suffocated Living

A group of New Zealand students have designed the ultimate green addition for eco-friendly living: a "clip-on" Plant Room.

The Clip-On Apartment: a Green Solution for Suffocated Living

The Plant Room is a small cubic room that bolts to the exterior of a building, allowing extra space for the typical cramped city dweller. The space is intended for gardening, and offers many other green features as well: a rainwater tank, a compost system, and solar power (which heats water for the whole apartment).

The project was designed for the Sustainable Habitat Challenge of 2009. Explanatory video and images below.

Well thats all sorts of neat, but how structurally sound is it, hanging off the side of a building.

Yeah... "Clip-On" doesnt really make you feel all that safe... especially to those above the second floor.
