The Ecomo Home modular housing system is based on square modular units that can be used as living spaces, “play” spaces or sleeping quarters. The units can be easily joined together in a variety of arrangements to create virtually any home desired. Once a floor plan is laid out, additional decks can be added to the exterior to provide outdoor living space.

The homes are designed based on sustainable design principles and incorporate low-maintenance materials. They are built in a factory in South Africa to minimize construction waste and then delivered to the site, where the modules are installed with a minimal impact to the environment. Solar energy systems can be installed on the roofs to provide enough renewable energy for the homes to operate off-grid, which is especially key for remote locations where there are no grid connections.
