Prefab Modern Capsule Tiny Houses


This was supposed to be some of the tiny houses of the future back in the 1900s.

It was originated in France and was made out of entirely synthetic materials.

I found out that it was designed in 1956 by Jean Maneval and the concept was to bunch these little capsules together to create the entire space of home.

Here is more information on these interesting prefab modern dwellings.

  1. Interesting concept and I like the idea of sections that can be joined together like this, an early prefab concept. I’d love to see interior photos of it and wonder if it was available in different sizes. Maybe these came out ahead of their time and would be accepted better today.
