The base of structure is pushed up by its steel legs from the ground that provides a maximum adaptation to the irregular terrains.The structure consists of large circular windows in cylindirical design that connects inddor-outdoor direct interaction with the environment and also provides natural ventilation.The total are of design is 23m2 but this space is enough for  a lounge area and a bedroom also includes a separate bathroom with toilet, shower and bath.In general,these types of modular systems involve thin photovoltaic solar films on the roof that can be combined with wood siding for power generation and a rainwater collection system harvests water for use in the bathroom, further reducing its environmental impact.
