Impressive features of the structures include outer walls that can come completely alive, providing sustenance through potential vegetable farming and plenty of fresh oxygen. The rooftop, as well as some of the outer walls, is equipped with solar panels and a rainwater collection device – along with some space for lounging leftover. The base can contain 1,500 gallons of water storage, which, when combined with its solar power, makes the unit mighty enticing for city dwellers tired of paying for electricity and water bills.

Elevate Structure Inc. is based out of Hawaii and plans on launching a Kickstarter campaign on August 12th. The units go above and beyond everyday environmentally friendly features, especially considering the tiny space – the base is only 40 square feet. The upstairs spaces range from 250-400 sq ft, providing a shaded canopy for businesses or parking underneath.
The Elevate Structure crew describes its mission: “to bring to the world the most innovative, practical spaces, that address global environmental concerns, while helping ELEVATE people’s lives.” Stay tuned for their Kickstarter campaign and information on how to “elevate” your home or business.
