So just a little bit ago I spoke about how many people are turning to having everything put into a central cube of sorts, with the bed on top. Here is another one that does just that. The really awesome thing I like about this is the underfloor storage that doesn’t have handles but instead uses a suction cup handle to lift it open. This leaves a much cleaner look without the need for handles.
With our industrial age ended and the market slumping so bad, we again find ourselves with a good bit of surplus of commercial space. This space is characterized by larger open space, exposed rafters, concrete floors and cheap for its size. So with this growing surplus as companies shutting their doors. This is a cube that is designed to be deployed into a space such as this. With a full bath, kitchen and large closet it has all you need. Now the designer states that multiple of these can be deployed in one space. So I what I do wonder is about the privacy with several of these.
This interesting Micro House is an interesting approach to the needs of day to day life. Taking space utilization to an extreme, the designers have taken very practical approaches to meeting the needs of the resident.
From the outside, the micro compact Paco House is a tiny cube, measuring three meters square. The contemporary prefab home boasts a minimal white facade devoid of details, yet it’s oddly intriguing. Designed with space efficiency in mind, Paco House was created with a minimal footprint – both physically and environmentally speaking – in order to blend into its environment with little impact to its surroundings. Because of its small dimensions, Paco doesn’t require an infrastructure. Eighty per cent of the home is manufactured in a plant, allowing for customization to the home and virtually endless possibilities for geographic placement. Paco House packs alternative energies into its small but oh-so-sweet design. This eco-friendly self-contained accommodation features solar and wind energy, water recycling and a biodegradable toilet.

I found this great cube house which is a really interesting design, the photos during the winter of the exterior bring images of A Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich. Unfortunately I didn’t find many interior shots of this vacation home, apparently near New York. The best part I think about the house is the view, they are amazing!
Here is all I was able to find on the house:
From a holiday house one has usually another conception – a unverputzter, simple Kubus from Bimsbetonsteinen is there rather the exception. This house stands in the widths of the American continent, well 300 kilometers northwest from New York town center. The dwellings are distributed on two floors; The roof terrace is attainable over fliers. (Literal translation from German website.)
It was Simon Ungers’ Cube House that pointed me to Cornell University. He is a major source of inspiration for me, and living in this house makes that inspiration constant.
