If you're a fan of resourcefulness, then this concept Microbial Home by Philips Design is the ideal place to hang your hat.

Aside from the home's sleek, slightly industrial styling, this abode is almost entirely self-sustaining. The heart of any home is the kitchen, and this center boasts a methane digester, which converts bathroom waste solids and vegetable trimmings into methane gas used to power other features in the home, and generates it's own bio-gas. Bio-gas is used to power instruments in the home, and is created from a culture of bacteria living on organic waste.

The home is also equipped with an urban beehive designed for keeping bees at home. This is done to create an astounding lighting system lit by a live bacteria that emits soft green light through bio-luminescence and a plastic waste up-cycler. With so many eco-friendly features, the Microbial Home shows that you can live well without leaving a hefty carbon footprint.

Bringing good taste and green thinking together in this concept dwelling, Philips Design may have offered a glimpse into the future of architecture and interior design with the Microbial Home concept.
