Egg-Shaped House in Beijing

Dai Haifei, 24 years old from Hunan province, has built and placed a small egg-shaped house in a courtyard in Beijing as a place to stay at night. When news came out, the house immediately caused great concerns of people and authorities.

Dai Haifei is a new graduate student and a designer for a design company in Beijing. Inspired by a prototype “egg house” during his internship for Standard Architecture (SA), he built the two-meter-tall structure in Hunan Province and later placed it near his company in Beijing. According to Dai Haifei, he moved into egg house because he couldn’t afford Beijing’s high rental prices. The adorable egg house mostly wins people’s recognition for being green. The two-meter-wide and three-meter-long egg shell is constructed from bamboo strips and layered with bamboo matting. The little house is equipped with lights, electric blanket and a pump-powered washbasin.

The house relies on electricity from the solar panel on its roof and battery recharged in the company’s workshop once a month.

Dai Haifei has been living in the house for almost 2 months.
