From Studio Liu Lubin

The Micro-house is based on the minimum space people need for basic indoor movement, such as sitting, laying and standing. The form of the Micro-house is designed to act as a combination of furniture and architecture elements. When being rotated, the unit of the Micro house will shift its space which contains all kinds of housing activities, such as resting, working, washing and cooking, etc.

The Micro house unit can not only be used as single- functional room, but also can be grouped together as a housing suite, or even residential cluster.The main material of the Micro-house is glass fiber reinforced plastic, which is light but strong. In this case, the Micro-house unit can be easily lift and assembled by hand. For the convenience of transportation and replacement, the size of the unit is designed as the size of containers.

The Micro-house makes it possible for people to have private housing product under current Chinese land policy.
