Home Delivery: The Micro Compact Home Comes To America

Richard Horden of Horden Cherry Lee Architects, one of the designers of the Micro Compact home, has it easy compared to the others; at 2.6 meters square (8'-8") it was designed to go down any road, and he could just ship the unit to New York.

"At a mere 76 square feet, this perfect cubic form packs a remarkable amount of muscle into its tiny envelope. The project is intended as a modern "machine for living," providing functioning spaces of sleeping, working/dining, cooking and hygiene for one or two people. Taking inspiration from the aerospace and automobile industries, the architects fashion a "high performance" cocoon primarily geared toward single persons with a mobile work or leisure-oriented lifestyle."
