The magician’s box! An eternal source of wonder! And then you see the Woonbox and you go damn! Dutch architecture house KAW is behind this other-worldly and yet highly amusing and seemingly effective idea. Brainchild of Arthur Rottier and Peter Jongman, Woonbox is a house for ‘temporary stay.’ This magical piece provides the functions of residential shower, toilet and a kitchen in a neat and compact box-like structure. Woonbox is also mechanized and mobile. The architects envisage a cubical that has several compartments which open up to reveal different units. Designed to serve as temporary residence in places where permanent homes are difficult to locate, Woonbox can be set-up in spaces like offices and parks as makeshift measures. Woonbox would also come in handy for the poor and homeless as well as the class of populace that cannot afford large permanent establishments. More images follow.
