‘Roll it’ experimental housing - University of Karlsruhe

1274297030-741-750-500-528x352 Here’s another variation on the theme of small and adaptable spaces.

1274297036-678-750-500-528x352 This time, rather than sliding panels cunningly designed to tranform a 32sqp apartment into 24 different layouts, we have an experimental house that transforms the space by rotation.

1274297037-681-687-500-528x384 Sort of in the way a hamster might do it.

But this is way more ingenious than a hamster could do.

You'd have to eat out though. A kitchen in there is going to be very messy.

Wonderful idea to take the benefits of weightlessness in a space-station to this rotating accommodation.

But what a bloody mess it must be in the cupboards. It would make a teenager feel right at home.

The geometry and curves are perfect for making love in there. The woman can lie or lean backward comfortably on to the curves.
