A Unique House That Folds Up to Be… Portable

If you find yourself having a difficult time settling down because you’re always looking for the next adventure or the next trip that’ll sweep you away, then we might know exactly what you need. Created by the New York-based SO-IL, comes a very unique house that, that’s right, folds up to become 100% portable!

It’s called “Breathe – Mini Living” home, and it was designed by the New York architecture firm SO-IL. Built entirely from reusable and recyclable materials, reducing its impact on the environment, the biggest key to the home’s mobility is that it wasn’t built on bricks or wood, but instead from a breathable mesh fabric!

A prototype of this portable home was set up during Milan Design Week, so if you were there, you already know how amazing and convenient this architectural piece can be. However, if you had the chance to visit this futuristic house, you also know that the material that it’s made of can be a little see-through, so if you were looking for an extra private residence, you might want to think twice.

Inside the structure, there are six small rooms and a rooftop that cover 861 square feet. In terms of functionality, the house takes advantage of a roof drainage system for washing purposes and is powered by a generator for electricity.

“[We want to] integrate this idea of the house moving with you, where the inhabitants would just have to change the exterior skin to adapt to the specific climate conditions,” Oke Hauser, the creative head of Mini Living who worked with SO-IL architects on the housing concept, told designboom. Meaning even though the design is still in its early stages, a flat-pack moving system might be in the works.
