If anyone could do with smaller, smarter accommodation to meet the needs of a growing population, it’s China, and Studio Liu Lubin have gone and done just that. The plus-shaped, modular living spaces were ‘based on the minimum space people need for basic indoor movement, such as sitting, laying and standing’.
The first unit has been place in Beijing park. The units are made of a fibre-reinforced structure, and combine to create spaces suitable for resting, working, washing and cooking.
Humble Homes has featured a variety of tiny houses and small living spaces, but the vast majority are stand-alone dwellings. In this case the units can be stacked like tetris blocks to create a larger structure. The interior doesn’t have much room to move around, but it’s no doubt step up from the minute, cramped ‘apartments’ that some Chinese people are currently living in.
