Sooner or later, the Earth colonists will land on Mars and they will have to find a place to live. The exit can be tiny Martian mini-houses, representing a convenient design of the first settlements. In appearance, they look like ice needles and are designed by the design firm Open Architecture. They have teamed up with Xiaomi, a Chinese electronics company, to create the perfect home on the Red Planet.
The company claims that its design is “a vision of an ideal home combining technology and the beauty of architecture.” It is important to understand that Mars has scarce resources, so the company is focused on maximum preservation. The design will be able to use and recycle heat, condensation, etc., returning everything to the functioning of the ecosystem.

That is, the energy of air and water will be fully recycled, minimizing resource consumption. In general, the house will cover 2.4 x 2.4 m, which means that the first colonizer will have to constrain himself a little in the size of the room. Of course, this is just one of many housing projects for those who set foot on the Red Planet first.
Engineers and architects still have a lot of time to carefully search and think over ideas, because the first manned mission to Mars is planned not earlier than the 2020s.
