If you’re a fan of stairs, air-tight enclosed spaces, and entering buildings through windows (and in this economy who isn’t?) then I have the house for you. Introducing the Micro-house! Developed by Studio Liu Lubin in Beijing.
The Micro-house is based on the minimum space people need for basic indoor movement, such as sitting, laying and standing. The form of the Micro-house is designed to act as a combination of furniture and architecture elements. When being rotated, the unit of the Micro house will shift its space which contains all kinds of housing activities, such as resting, working, washing and cooking, etc. The Micro house unit can not only be used as single- functional room, but also can be grouped together as a housing suite, or even residential cluster.
If you didn’t gather from their description the image above actually shows three Micro-houses stacked together. Now you’re getting a feel for just how micro we’re talking. The idea, of course, is to make cheaper housing which I can absolutely appreciate. But in this case I think you’ll probably be better off under that overpass you’ve claimed and fought so viciously to protect.
