B-and-BEE Stackable ‘Honeycomb’ Micro Shelters

Although not practical as a full time living space I thought you’d still enjoy seeing these B-and-BEE Stackable Micro Shelters because they’re interesting and can be useful in lots of different situations.

They were created by Belgian designers/supporters at Archilles Design, One Small Step, Compaan, and Labeur as a way for people to better enjoy festivals. But as soon as I saw them I thought how they can also be used as emergency shelters, napping pods, ‘glamping’, camping, and more.

And it’s all put together and stacked using a ‘honeycomb shelter’ design. They’re easy to set up and can be stacked four high with a staircase system added for upstairs access.

    This is the coolest thing I have seen in tiny living – it looks like a mobile apartment complex!

    These are clever and cute, much more so than the sleeping pods in Tokyo that you featured ($700 per month). But then they are filled with college students, not a middle aged man trying to survive. Sometimes these things give me a heartache.

    These would be great for the homeless situation for some cities.

    Whew! Thought I’d seen it all. I love these. The first thing I thought of was how cool these would be for camping but I agree that these would be excellent for homeless, emergency, and students. I would’ve painted a cat face on the front though. Wadda ya gonna do. Sigh.

    Practical. Pretty. And oh so cool!!

    Oh. Em. Gee… I never would have believed it. The NEW owlcatraz! Somebody please, tell Jeff Rense!!!! : p

    You could make something like these pretty easily with some solid or hollow core doors.

    Call me what you like, but my first thought was that one amorous couple would ruin that setup for everyone. -Especially- at some festivals. No soundproofing, and how sturdy are they?

    If the honeycomb’s a-rockin’….

    Also, people who snore. My BIL could probably shake that thing to the ground on resonance alone.

    I do like the sliding futon thing, though.
