Looking for a hot new pad? Check out these incredible cuboid ‘module style’ houses designed by China’s liu lubin studio.
The idea behind the design is to enable them to be stacked freely on top of each other, like building blocks.
This example has been installed in Beijing Park. It’s been created from three cubes, one for the bedroom, one for the toilet, and one for a workspace. Once the modules have been fitted together, it creates a stair shape that you can climb up to hang out on the roof.
While it does look pretty cool, we can see some definite downsides, the biggest being that you have to head outside to access each room. Seems kind of a pain if you have to get up in the night to visit the bathroom. But for anyone with a big enough garden it would be perfect as a novelty sun-house.
I won’t be moving out of my house into one of these just yet, but with a few more design improvements these could be all the rage in a few years time, especially in space-strapped places such as Japan and China’s big cities.
