The Solus Abode offers a sustainable solution to hygiene as the perforations allow for rainwater to seep into and collect in the top storage compartment, slowly releasing water to the shower and toilet below. A filtration system cleans and makes the water potable.
A series of operable hatches allow for access in and out of the structure, prevent claustrophobia, and provide the opportunity for natural daylighting and cross ventilation to purify the indoor air quality.
A waste collector is located directly underneath the watercloset. Under a tightly sealed hatch, to prevent odors from entering the space, human soil is held so that the user may use as fertilzer as a process to grow his or her own food and crops.
