Szakács Botond: #TheMinimalist

Szakács Botond considers himself a simple villager, for he spent most of his childhood in the countryside. Working in the fields was part of their daily routine. He was surrounded by animals and nature every day. Years later, a long-awaited dream came true when the opportunity arose to escape the city and move into a country house with his wife and two small children. The move wasn’t usual, mainly because they had no such building. So they decided to create the prototype version of a modular home on wheels. Due to the project’s complexity, they temporarily moved into a tiny 20-square-meter house. The initially planned two months became a life-defining 20 months. During this period, their life got simpler. They got closer to nature and each other. At the same time, they also built an international business worth millions.
