The Hypercubus concept is based on three fundamental concepts:
– the use of open areas with available infrastructure (alternatively also self-sufficient)
The project develops an idea for tourism in the respective region. The ‘minimal housing’ apartments use existing resources, are transportable thanks to their mobile construction and are used where they are needed depending on the season. In this way, the very same object can be used at various locations during the year, according to wherever there is demand at the time. This means that location-dependent deficits in utilisation can be compensated out of season. For larger events, the living units can be brought together from across the region. The apartments create their own corporate design and thus form an identity for each (new) location.
Named after the mathematical hypercube shape, the Hypercubus is a mobile hotel room.
Essentially, the project reinterprets the “hotel” concept. The Hypercubus is designed in such a way that it can be totally independent technically; installation can be temporary and several Hypercubus units can be grouped into clusters. Transport is straightforward, meaning that Hypercubuses can be used on a seasonal basis and according to demand, moving around according to where they are most needed.
As a team of young architects, trained cabinetmakers and graduates of a furniture design college, Studio WG3 is always at pains to come up with the right concept whatever the brief. Its strengths are first and foremost the creation of global solutions, which make themselves felt not just in terms of their architecture but also the design of the inside space. Since its launch Studio WG3 has never been afraid of contact with other sectors, and interdisciplinary cooperation is one of the key approaches that characterise its projects.
