Skip to comments.The Cubitat Shrinks an Entire House Into One Compact Cube

Those on a quest to rethink small-space living build tiny houses, install pop-up rentals on vacant lots, and design portable 10-square-foot microkitchens tucked inside armoires. Presented over the weekend at Torontos Interior Design Show, Cubitat is a 10-by-10-by-10-foot cube that houses a kitchen, bathroom, bed, laundry, and storage.

Meh. Make it so it fits in a shipping container survival shelter, and maybe you have a winner. ;-)
"Don't @#&* where you eat."
Looks cute, but just don’t own any personal items because there’s no room for them.
My habitat is only 425 square feet and one book out of place makes the entire space look trashed out.
It’s a great concept for camping, but not for long term living. It IS however, great for showing how space utilization can make a world of difference in any home. Most houses have tons of wasted space.
Duh! Unfortunately people are that dumb!
Turn it inside out (put the living space in the interior) and u have a prototype space habitat.
Nice architectural industrial design euro-trash project.
Its Sooo funny though -
The idiots that designed this home Borg cube built it as a monolithic structure that can’t be broken down in pieces to move through dwelling doorways.
It “can” be dropped in through a roof opening, according to the article.
These will be great fixtures in FEMA camp habitat suites!
That reminds me of an ancient limerick I learned as a kid. Goes like this: “Here’s to the boy from Boston, who owned a baby Austin. He had room for his @$$ and a gallon of gas but his b@ll$ hung loose and he lost ‘em!”
That’ll work just fine when they round us up and put us in the Super Dome.
Paint this home cube all black, and maybe it’ll be popular with the Mecca pilgrimage set.
I bet they never throw stones.
Except that the size of the bathroom prevents opening the bed. It requires an outer shell of some sort as it is currently designed.
I figure a 27’ x 37’ would do it, about 1000 sq’. I’m not trying to sell it BTW. I just found it interesting for the right setting.
If you built a glass house like the Philip Johnson house, this module might make sense. I happen to love that house! But you have to have a great piece of property. I suspect this cube took inspirations from The Glass House.
The Band, Genesis, did a song about people getting kicked out of their homes and some central housing ministry putting new restrictions on humanoid height. This would be the perfect flat if you could make it out of even cheaper materials and include an incinerator to eliminate uppity folk.
This is all a push by the envirowhackos to force people into cities and out of the suburbs to “save the planet from globull warming”.
In the right setting.
Just can`t imagine what that could be.
If the room is available for “27x37” you wouldn`t use it, if the room is small enough to warrant it you couldn`t use it.
Have to put it down to an interesting “ Design Concept”. :)
