The project of a cubic house at the exhibition Resultthe cubic house project might have objected to Mick Jagger. As a singer once said, you can't always get what you want. In particular, with regard to real estate, one has to be content with what the developers offer when it comes to bathrooms and kitchens, as well as those parts of the house where there are water pipes. For convenience and efficiency, they are usually mounted in the corners next door. But these rooms are very personal and people prefer when they are more detached. Since the end of the 1990s, the project company Urban Capital in Toronto has been looking for ways to divide these zones in order to give buyers more freedom. The original solution can be considered the layout of a space built around a cubic structure with a transformer function. Pilot development was implemented in conjunction with the company TreeHugger founder Graham Hill. The drawing of the project of the cubic house is now undertakennext step. Urban Capital and designer Luca Nichetto created Cubitat. This is a cube 10x10x10 feet (about 3x3x3 meters), it fully contains everything you need for life - a bathroom, a kitchen and a laundry room, storage cabinets and a pull-out double bed that does not take up space while in the drawer. This is all that is needed in the apartment, perhaps, excluding only a yoga mat. It has a comfortable kitchen with a fridge, a freezer and a dishwasher at half the height of the built-in panel. Plus a lot of storage space for all kinds of utensils. Kitchen area The bathroom has a shower stall behind a frosted glass wall and a laundry closet that is not too noticeable in the photo. Great and small bathroom, quitecomfortable Sliding bed, designed in such a way that you can safely watch TV in bed. The idea of a retractable bed looks more comfortable than the Murphy bed concept. You do not have to fix the mattress to remove the bed, when unexpected guests rang at the door. This model you can simply close with one click. The bed moves in one motion. There is plenty of storage space in the backreally great. The traditional building is built for a long time Plumbing and electrical wiring are mounted at different stages. Cubit separates the living area from the external walls, offering to connect everything you need and use. He creates a solid prefab house in a drawer and can be placed anywhere: a new home, an old factory, a loft, or a school. There are several serious problems that still need to be addressed. The biggest is that the cube will not pass through the door. This really limits its use. Bucky Fuller, designing his finished bathrooms in the forties, cut them into pieces to reassemble inside. It is possible that this applies here. The great thing about how services are separateddirectly from the space. Professor Peter Prangnell from the University of Toronto named the three main components of the architecture: support, content and action. This can be interpreted as a basic structure of the building, serving as supporting material, what we bring to its filling, and how we use it - the action. The support is designed by architects and builders. The concept of Fill is similar to the choice for which the future. The more volume is filled instead of remaining only support, the wider the possibilities of consumers. And the better the concept is developed, the more space there will be for action. So, Urban Capital and Nichetto Studios have taken an extensive step for this. And you would not refuse such a house?
