This Ultra-Compact Houseboat Is Powered By Roof-Mounted Solar Panels

Whether it’s because of instant communication, next-day delivery, or some other 21st-century novelty, everyone can appreciate the convenience that comes with living in an increasingly digital world. However, it’s not without its caveats, for though it allows us to go about our daily lives at an unprecedented pace, it also prevents us from slowing down when we ought to.

In an effort to break from the speed of 21st-century society, Hungarian-based architect Tamás Bene has built the houseboat you see before you. Dubbed ‘Sneci’ (Hungarian for ‘snail’), it’s a pretty simple affair with just two purposes in mind: sustainability and mobility. Inside, the accommodations include a sleeping area outfitted with a double bed; a kitchen complete with a sink, a miniature refrigerator, and a gas-powered stove; as well as a small multipurpose dining area furnished with electric light fixtures. And in order to power the boat’s creature comforts, a pair of solar panels have been mounted to the roof — more than enough because drinking water is drawn from a foot-pump operated storage tank. Paneled with thermo-wood,  Redwood timber, and outfitted with a series of small portholes, Sneci makes for a welcome reminder to slow down and enjoy the moment.
