GREEN ZERO by Studio di Architettura Daniele Menichini is a new interpretation of the modular housing suite that can be placed just about anywhere: from the woods to the beach to your own backyard. It’s small, a private retreat that acts as a sanctuary from the everyday for you or for guests that goes beyond the backyard shed: this one has a deck/patio area and a bathroom. Essentially, it’s a modular hotel room.
The prefab exterior is made of wood and features a natural stone foundation, rainwater management system and drainage system that integrates into the aesthetics.
Inside, there’s more than enough room for two. A funky tree-inspired mural acts as a focal point, but can’t compete with that view as you’re laying in bed.
I think my favorite part of this project is the bathroom, with its oversized patterned tiles printed with photography. It just seems like a calm, relaxing space. I could totally vacation here. How long before we see hotels popping up that consist of units such as these?
This particular unit is located in Treviso, Italy.
