Mini-House Addition Won't Upset Your Landlord
Designed by the German team at Convertible City, Rucksack House is a quick and easy way to expand your apartment size without the hassle of moving. This walk-in cube functions as an additional room, hanging from the façade of your current residence via steel cables anchored to the roof. The portable space gives one the feeling of floating above any outside activity, with its plentiful windows and urban treehouse vibe. The construction is based off a welded steel cage with a birch veneered plywood interior, and an exterior grade plywood with an absorbent resin covering on the outside. Creatively placed plexiglass inserts allow for natural light and people watching below. With the aid of hidden magnets, sections of the wall also unfold to create a desk and platform for lounging. I personally can't imagine why anyone would be in opposition to this innovative home addition, can you? I think I'll order one today and see what happens when the crane comes to install it.
