Tiny House B.E.S.D.®

Tiny House B.E.S.D.® is built with a safe and reliable system, which - besides the features of mobility and self-production of energy - is able to resist to extreme weather conditions such as storms, floods and earthquakes.
Technology validated in relevant environment.
Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components.
Activities of R&D are at the TRL 3, with an advanced level of design, but there is lack of validations carried out by external laboratories or authorities. In the meanwhile, from an operational point of view, the technology is at the TRL 5, with a real unit built with a like technology (same load bearing structure).

How does it work?

Tiny House B.E.S.D.® uses a new building technology, which allows the construction of houses with high flexibility and adaptability to extreme weather conditions. The house can be built on different supports such as piles, like stilt houses, wheels and energy sinks. All the building elements, both supporting and supported, are connected through mechanical systems, which allow a perfect collaboration. This makes the house waterproof and resistant to high stresses like earthquakes and waves. Moreover, thanks to its low needs and to the integration with technologies for the production and the management of energy, the house can be completely independent from the power grid, and provide by itself energy from renewable sources.
