Designers Build Eco-Friendly Portable Home from 2 Recycled Water Tanks

By: | September 10th, 2014

The designers at Stereotank, in New York City, have joined in on the growing tiny home trend, creating a traveling shelter from two recycled water tanks.

The two 3,000-liter water tanks are bound together by a piece of wood. The home, called Taku-Tanku, features enough storage space to fit up to three people.

Stereotank designers Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente are currently seeking a sponsor to help build its first prototype of the solar-powered traveling home, which Ertorteguy and Valente say can easily be attached to a bicycle, car or even a boat.

According to the Stereotank website, the project “can travel through many landscapes to serve as companion and shelter but also as a sculpture that celebrates the vital role of water in our lives.”
