Jyubako in Tokyo, Japan by KENGO KUMA AND ASSOCIATES

Monday, May 28th, 2018


Jyubako is a trailer house (mobile home) developed and produced by KKAA and snow peak, a Japanese manufacturer for outdoor goods. For the designing of a trailer house, there are regulatory requirements to be cleared in its size and weight, so to make the living place spacious, we set the door that can be kept open.

It is a proposal for another nomadic lifestyle.

The Inside Outside House by jantzen studio

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: jantzen studio 

The Inside Outside House is a prefabricated, modular, movable, building system. It consists of a series of segments of various sizes made of wood support frames, and clad with concrete composite materials. Each of these prefabricated segments can be trucked to nearly any site where they are placed onto the ground with little site preparation needed. The segments are bolted together into many different kinds of configurations, depending on the specific functional and/or aesthetic requirements. These segments (shown in white) make up the enclosed and insulated portion of the Inside Outside House. In this design, the insulated segments have been connected together after they were shifted side by side into a staggered configuration. The spaces in-between the staggered segments were filled in with large glass panels. In addition to the white insulated segments, a series slotted green painted wood segments have been added onto both ends of the white enclosed portion of the house. These segments are used to extend the living space of the house into the outdoors. All of these segments shade the deck spaces below, and some of them have places to sit or lay built in. Others form partial enclosures for vegetation that is incorporated into the outdoor living space. Solar panels have been added to two of the white segments in order to generate heat and electricity from the sun for use in and around the house. This specific small Inside Outside House was designed for two people as a weekend retreat.

#48 Zero Energy in Geel, Belgium by Skilpod + UAU Collectiv

The growing demand for and interest in new forms of living together inspired a Belgian entrepreneurial duo to develop the product Skilpod. A Skilpod is a mobile and modular housing construction that attaches great importance to its energetic properties but that is also always searching for progressive and diverse designs. By means of modular architecture Skilpod searches for a combination of flexibility and energy efficiency. The module is completely built and finished in the Skilpod-studio and subsequently transported and placed on the site. As a result the Skilpod is also moveable to a new location at a later time. The housing constructions are built out of a timber frame structure of CLT, Cross Laminated Timber, and fully isolated with a layer of rock wool insulation. In a Skilpod all techniques can be integrated that are used in a traditional house or office. Application of solar panels, heat pumps, ventilation systems, home automation systems etc. is possible, tailored to the user requirements.

The Rotating Radius House in New Mexico by jantzen studio

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Rotating Radius House is an experimental interactive architecture project designed to provide a special weekend retreat place for two people living in New Mexico.

At the center is a twenty-foot diameter glass and steel cylindrical space formed by twelve perimeter sliding glass doors, and by twelve segments of a sloped glass and steel roof. Each of the sliding glass doors is fitted with interior privacy shades and screens. This space contains a large centrally located light, a bed, chairs, tables, a food preparation pod, and a bath/toilet pod, all mounted on wheels. The entire house is powered by a large solar panel mounted on the top of the structure, and by auxiliary propane gas, stored nearby in steel tanks. Rainwater is collected off of the roof and purified for use in the house, and stored in an outside reservoir.

Imagine this: small is large enough for you. This Timber Independent Mobile, Tiny TIM, is smart about resource use, extremely energy efficient and has low living expenses.

Tiny TIM is flexible with a multifunctional interior. Everything happens on 13 m2: sleeping above the technical and wet spaces on a mezzanine; kitchen cabinets serve as staircase; even the sofa is multifunctional: sitting, sleeping, storing.

The Transformable Workplace Pod by jantzen studio

Article source: jantzen studio

The Transformable Workplace Pod is a concept proposal for a special place in which to work. The design of the painted wood structure is based on an eight-foot cube, but these dimensions can change, and the basic cube can be connected together with other cubes in multiple diverse configurations, to form much larger spaces. The prefabricated cubes can be delivered to a site with little preparation needed.
