Good news for researchers who work under freezing conditions at the end of the earth in the North Pole and Arctic. 2-B-2 Architecture’s Andrey Bondarenko has come up with unique equipment that keeps three people cozy and safe in the chilly weather for a good 15 days. Dubbed the Arctic Mobile Unit, the tiny living space is equipped with a solar battery and power generator operated between -40 to +10C and can withstand winds up to 85 km/hour (about 50 mph).

The Arctic Mobile Unit consists of module parts that make up a washroom, work/rest area, galley and kitchen. It also has a solar-powered battery that collects energy and a 5-kilowatt generator that powers a snow melter. Both of these account in keeping the occupants warm from the frigid conditions. The unit that is capable of being folded into a compact form measuring just 2000 x 1600 x 2300 mm, is made up of a steel frame, and clad with carbon panels and polyethylene, thermo-insulating membranes. The folding option and its weight of 1500kgs make comparatively easy to transport from location to location.
