Alpine Capsule Compact Mountain Living Unit

Alpine Capsule.

Designed by London-based architect Ross Lovegrove, the Alpine Capsule will be presented at Alta Badia, Italy, in December. This mountain living unit has a diameter of eight metres, and constructed with acrylic and a reflective coating that offers 360 degree view. The construction is expected begin next year in Piz la Ila (Alta Badia, Italy) at 2100 meters of altitude.

The Alpine Capsule will be completely “off-the-grid” and energy independent; the necessary energy will be supplied by external “power plants”, using solar photovoltaic technology integrated with vertical wind turbines.
