In Brief

PassivDom's houses are made to be completely self-reliant and can withstand a range of extreme weather

Going off the grid no longer needs to be the rugged experience it once was, at least if Ukrainian technological startup PassivDom has a say. The company claims to have created the first totally autonomous house in the world that doesn’t need any fuel combustion and can withstand a variety of climates including freezing Arctic temperatures.

The module uses only solar energy to provide for all of the inhabitant’s needs including water, electricity, heating and cooling, and produces zero carbon emissions. The home is also IoT-enabled and can be controlled entirely from a smartphone.

The 3D-printed prefabricated frame is produced using an industrial robot, which prints materials include carbon fiber, fiberglass, polyurethane and resins, all which are environmentally safe and easy to recycle. The frame is so strong PassivDom claims the house can withstand hurricanes and earthquakes, and can even be built without a foundation, making the home mobile and easily transported.
