operating under the premise that function can be consolidated, studio liu lubin has designed ‘micro house’ and placed the suite in a beijing park.
the fiber-reinforced structure uses modular measurements to created a minimal dwelling that combines resting, working, washing and kitchen
programming into a single unit. the tectonics are such that the home can be easily assembled by hand and are light enough to be transportable.
the basic construction unit fits into a standard sized container so as to ensure that the great majority of the population to have private housing
under current chinese land policy. interiors use the architectural planes as furniture surfaces and functional envelopes, enabling comfortable
sitting, standing and relaxation with the minimum possible area. the brilliant composition of spaces can be clustered or stand individually.
