This "Micro-Compact Home" was inspired by the compact spaces in first-class airplane cabins, and the classic scale and order of a Japanese tea house. They are lightweight, transportable, and cost 50,000 Euros. They are an interesting, if extreme, exercise in making efficient use of indoor space. The tiny cube provides a double bed on an upper level and working table and dining space for four or five people on a lower level.The kitchen bar is accordingly arranged to serve these two levels. The entrance lobby has triple use and functions as a bathroom and drying space for clothing. Storage is provided off each of these four functioning spaces.
They will be installed in a "village" on campus at the Technical University of Munich, were they were designed.
