This is a 100-year-old Kyoto home in Japan that was renovated by NAAD architects using plywood. The home offers 645 sq. ft. of space and it’s been remodeled with multi-functionality and privacy in mind using all plywood.

When you go inside you’ll see how you can slide several of the plywood wall units to transform the place according to your needs. From shape shifting rooms to privacy walls, you really have to see it to believe it in the video below. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This is the drawer house created by Japanese architects Nendo in Tokyo, Japan.

It’s a multi-functional residential home that transforms according to what you’re doing whether it’s cooking, sleeping, entertaining, dining, bathing, or studying.

Everything pulls out of one wall so that just like a drawer, you can pull out and put away whatever you need. It’s a versatile way to deal with the limited amount of space available in places like Tokyo. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This transforming castle house truck was designed and built by a young family who live off grid in it.

They live in New Zealand and travel often. But once they find a parking space, their house truck expands incredibly.

I’m absolutely amazed by this project. I’m almost speechless after watching the video below. You’ll have to see it for yourself below to really understand how incredible this tiny house is.

Unbelievably, this tiny expanding house truck has…

  • A rooftop bathtub.
  • An upstairs open balcony space.
  • A separate shower downstairs.
  • A separate toilet room downstairs.
  • Solar panels.
  • A Large kitchen.

And more. Much more. You really have to see it to understand.

Kitoko Studio architects in France have decided to take this old “maid room” in Paris and redesign it into a transforming 86 sq. ft. micro apartment studio.

Normally spaces such as these are so small that people end up using them as storage spaces but with some smart design concepts it has been turned into a nice and affordable living space in France’s capital.

Sliding doors and cabinets reveal a sleeping loft, storage spaces, a pullout staircase, a wardrobe, dining table, and more. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

Right now I’m showing you these 3-in-1 transforming/expanding shipping container shelters designed and built by MSS.

The units are easy to ship since they’re the size of a shipping container so you can have it moved just about anywhere pretty easily.

Once you have it on site and deployed you’re able to triple the size of the unit in just a few minutes. This isn’t necessary for most of us, but I think it’s fun and worth taking a look. Watch the videos below to see how it works. Enjoy!

When Bill Southworth of Hybrid Propulsion began traveling with his Rottweiler he was unhappy with where he had to end up staying. That’s why he ended up creating the 80 sq. ft. transforming cargo trailer stealth tiny house I’m showing you right now.

His options before designing and building this unique little cabin on wheels was to stay at motels that were rather unpleasant or high end dog-friendly hotels that were way too expensive. After looking at most of the travel trailer options out there, he was also unhappy with how large, ugly, inefficient, and awfully constructed they were.

Inspired by Graham Hill’s transforming apartment in NYC, he set his mind on creating a way to build his own hotel on wheels. And that’s how this beautiful 16′ Haulmark cargo trailer turned modern micro cabin on wheels was born. Please enjoy.

Our big thanks to Saint Phlip for sending and sharing this story with us!
