Tricycle House by People’s Architecture Office (PAO) with its accordion design allows you to hook up more than one pod to another and extend your small house to any housing needs. Tricycle house include sink, wash tub, stove, water tank, furniture and even an outdoor garden (on separate tricycle). It honors the environment with supreme sustainability hosting no emissions and no footprints, nor energy sources …completely freedom 🙂

The Tricycle House is also an experiment with folded plastic as a construction method. Using a CNC router each piece of the house is cut and scored flat and then folded and welded into shape. The plastic we use, polypropylene, is unique in that it can be folded without losing its strength. The house itself can therefore entirely open up to the outside, expand out like an accordion to increase space, and connect to other houses. The plastic is also translucent ensuring the interior is always well lit whether by the sun during the day or street lamps at night.
The Tricycle House is man powered allowing off-the-grid living. Facilities in the house include a sink and stove, a bathtub, a water tank, and furniture that can transform from a bed to a dining table and bench to a bench and counter top. The sink, stove, and bathtub can collapse into the front wall of the house.
The Tricycle House is also partnered with a Tricycle Garden. The garden can be planted with not only grass but trees and vegetables. The front of the garden doubles as tricycle seating in order to maximize green space. And several gardens can be combined to form a large public green space.
