No, it is not the latest proposal of ministries of the Ministry of Housing, nor the last cry in prefabricated houses. This small home, built on a trailer of standard dimensions, it is part of an advertising campaign of a mobile phone company.
The first thing I thought when reading the news, without having seen the images, was that I didn't have much merit, it was something that had been done for a long time; They are called caravans and have been living campsites throughout this world. However, except the largest and most luxurious, the roulottes have always been somewhat narrow.
But we are going to what interests us, how to build a living space for a marriage with two children within a structure six meters long, two and a half wide and less than four high. The result, to my surprise, wide and pleasant.
The first thing that was done was split height in two, a larger one for the living room and the kitchen and a smaller one for the bedroom. In this way it is possible to almost double the fifteen square meters of surface.
So, in the low level, there is a small kitchen with the essentials; two hot plates, a fridge, a sink and a folding table. The living room is somewhat concise and has a sofa bed, a pouf, a small table and a tiny plasma TV. Of course, it is a double height space. The bathroom is hidden under the stairs and includes the basic necessities; sink, toilet and shower.
All corners are maximized, the staircase is a folded sheet and under it there is space to store chairs, toys, books, a lamp and even the telephone. The little table and the pouf can be hidden under the landing, expanding the space of the room for children to play at ease. Just as the table is somewhat sparse and disturb the first steps, perhaps it would be a good idea to be retractable.
At loft, although it is hard to believe, a double bed, a single bed and a removable crib fit comfortably. In addition, the cabinets are low furniture that does not reach the ceiling while maintaining the feeling of spaciousness. At night the solar cover, which supplies them up to 1300 Kilowatts per hour, folds over the window, protecting the bedroom from light and prying eyes.
As for the materials, the choice of a combination of white lacquered furniture with a wooden floor seems very right, because it brings warmth and clarity.
Like, with so much child, they miss more place to store toys, paintings and coloring books, but I think it's something worth sacrificing in exchange for a nice place to live.
