Architecture and Nature are the two guiding principles behind Ecomo.
Its goal is not to separate these two elements but rather to synergise
them to create designs that are coherent with the environment.

The  ECOMO HOME  modular housing system is based on the square modular units that can be used as living spaces ( "LIVE", "SLEEP", "PLAY" ). The units can be easily joined together to create virtually any home desired.

The ecomo home is a compact home designed for modern, simple living in collaboration with nature...

The  ECOMO HOME  concept consists of three units: 
  • Sleep
  • Play
  • Live

These three elements can be arranged in a way that perfectly meets the client’s needs or some of these elements can simply be added at a later stage. This offers freedom to simply increase the size of the house when needed.

The ECOMO HOME is based on basic sustainable, green design principles. It offers a low-maintenance, modern, well-designed green housing alternative...

  • an innovative solution to the residential market that responds and adapts to the changing modes of living related to the modern condition
  • offers an escape from the concrete jungle and enables you to enjoy the time in natural surroundings
  • affords a wider group of people to experience this kind of luxury and creates spaces that are earth and human friendly 
  • responsible approach to intrinsic design aspects and the environment in which we live

Another thing that Invitation To Inspiration loves about ECOMO is THE ECO_MOBILE
  • the eco_mobile is a 40 foot container size steel frame manufactured in its entirety off site 
  • clad with wooden panels and timber flooring, this unit consists of a bedroom with bathroom and a kitchenette with living space 
  • various panels can be flipped down to create outdoor areas and also increase the living space towards the outside
  • the hybrid energy and the bio toilet component allow this unit to be placed anywhere 
  • completely self sufficient 
  • this temporary structure doesn’t require foundations- instead, footings will anchor the unit to the ground in a non invasive and easy removable manner

Have a nice day everyone :-D
