Roll It: An Experimental Rolling House

Experimental housing is usually pretty minimalist, exemplifies interesting design ideas, and fits into a compact space. Roll It, a new design by the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, is a great example of this. The house is a giant cylinder, sectioned into different "rooms." The outside is covered in a translucent material that serves as windows in certain parts of the cylinder and adspace on the rest.

Roll It, a cool experimental house, resulted from the collaboration among different institutes within the University of Karlsruhe. This cyclindrical design is a modular protype that provides flexible space within a minimum housing unit. Three different sections are dedicated to different functional needs: there’s a bed and table in section, an exercise cylinder, and a kitchen with a sink.
