A new building concept with mobile housing units has a small base area, ideal for urban living.

Architect Felipe Campolina has designed a building concept which combines portability with eco-friendliness. The structure, housing hundreds of mobile home units, has a lift for the modules to move up and down, a tower with a staircase and water storage space and a lattice-like structure between each tower providing a place for units to slide into their levels.

An individual housing unit features a living room, dining room, bathroom and a bedroom. Each floor of the tower has six independent units that can enter and leave the complex without interfering with others. Apart from lifts, there are several slide rails for horizontal transferring of the units. Because of its small geometrical base, the building can be constructed in an urban area and act as a private residence or hotel.
