There’s nothing truer than when designers are given free reign to let their creativity run wild, they can come up with some pretty amazing, wonderful and out-of-this-world concepts.
Never has this been truer than with the Roll It house, as recently featured by Arch Daily.
A collaborative effort by numerous institutes within the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, the Roll It experimental house design is modular, meaning that an object is created by joining together standardised units to form a larger creation.
Within a very small cylinder, there are multiple, flexible spaces for various functional requirements, such as a bed, a table, an exercise area and a kitchen with a sink. Made with various slats of wood, there are circular openings in the walls to enable plenty of natural light into the cylinder.
Now, it’s probably true that you wouldn’t want to spend every waking hour in the Roll It, however, as a space saving concept, it’s both unique and ingenious.
