Probably, having seen this nondescript container on our site, you wondered how IT got here. The answer is: this "nondescript container", when you press a single button, will turn into a luxurious five-room house. Don't believe me?
The "Push Button House" project, which literally translates as "Home at the push of a button", was presented at several exhibitions this year by the architect-artist Adam Kalkin. In July, it was still just a project, and a fully functional model was presented at the New York City's Time Warner Center. It seems incredible, but a five-room house with a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room and library appears in just 90 seconds after pressing a button on this industrial container.
Of course, the house is made from 100% recyclable materials and is based on a system of hydraulic cylinders controlled by a designer. And it can be used in a variety of situations. For example, as an aid to people whose houses were damaged during natural disasters, as an exhibition space, or as an ordinary residential building.
