Under Floor Bookcase

So this is a bit interesting, here is an apartment done by .27 Architects to have a bookcase inlaid into the floor.  From what I gather it doesn’t seem to have any cover, it simply stays exposed the whole time.  It got me thinking about what could you do with this concept, so a quick search revealed what others are doing.

Urban Homestead

Here is one of my favorite inspirations for gardening.  They are the Dervaes family is an impressive group, producing thousands of pounds of produce on only 1/10th of an acre.  You can see their website here

Bus Home

So this is a follow up to the oil tanker truck house.  This one seems much more reasonable, but it is done in the same style where the artist draws a very depressing color scheme.  Anyway, this is done by a Greek professor by the name of  Aristide Antonas who is big into reuse of current objects and he came up with this house bus.  He feels that designers often over think things and bring things to an extreme just for the sake of being extreme.

This two-story used bus is imagined as a potential hotel or a portable commuting community space for professionals on-the-go. It features seven beds, a living room area and a restroom and would fit int typical mobile home parks, though finding dealers with parts for sale might be a bit trickier.  It is an intentionally non-radical work of construction, requiring no contractor or elaborate plans to be built – just a group of people who wish to turn an ordinary vehicle into a multi-person housing unit on wheels. The value is in the labor, not the design – and forget about estates or land prices.
