living in a box

There was an interesting story on Beyond Tomorrow the other night about this compact house which is only 2.6 cubic metres in size.

This was designed by the Technical University in Munich. It seems that units are already in use (in the form of a student village) in response to cheap student accommodation shortages in the city.

I'm not sure that my human and I could live in such a tiny space. For a start, the designers did not factor in an area for a kitty's litter tray.

In any case, there is something to be said about the inventiveness of German design.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Today was a very lazy day. My human and I slept in until 9am, and we just lounged around vegging. Perfect Saturday activities.

I saw the same story in Time a few months ago. I think there's something to be said about downsizing; especially in light of the ridiculously oversized houses being built all over the U.S. recently. Howver, I'm pretty sure I'd need more space than that; Gracie and I would be fighting over territory!

Same here. Those huge houses are called McMansions in Sydney. I would call them ostentatious.
