Microbial home by Philips

This is a great inspirational concept for a 100% metabolic house. In this vision, the elements of the kitchen are seen as a single machine where the waste of a part of it is reused to give life to another element. I love the idea of a house where waste becomes the energy for a second component of your kitchen. It is also great to look at: nice lines between rustic, industrial, chemical and a little magical.

“The Microbial Home is viewed as a cyclical biological machine where wastes like sewage, effluent, garbage, wastewater are filtered, processed and recycled to be used as inputs for the various home functions. The project includes various aspects like a Bio Digester Island and Larder in the kitchen, Urban Beehive, Bio-light, Apothecary, Filtering Squatting Toilet and Paternoster Plastic Waste Up-cycler.” [WIRED]
