Would You live in a Cube? (Video)
By Eric • Apr 16, 2011 • Selected Work
The Cube Project describes itself as “a compact home, no bigger than 3x3x3 meters on the inside, in which one person could live a comfortable, modern existence with a minimum impact on the environment.”
The “home” was designed and developed by Dr. Mike Page as a project of the University of Hertfordshire.
The Cube is designed to provide everything you need and includes “a lounge, with a table and two custom-made chairs, a small double bed (120cm wide), a full-size shower, a kitchen (with energy-efficient fridge, induction hob, re-circulating cooker hood, sink/drainer, combination microwave oven and storage cupboards), a washing machine, and a composting toilet.”
This 97 square-foot house is also designed to generate at least as much energy as it uses, thanks to eight solar photovoltaic panels installed on the roof.
The Cube was built with sponsor donations, but Page estimates that it would cost around $80,000 (£50,000) to be replicated.
Check out below the video of the construction of the Cube.
