This Folding House Could be the Future of Building Design

Mobile housing has long been the quick and cheap solution for many across the world. It’s easy to set up and it is usually much cheaper than traditional construction. However, usually, you have to compromise on finish quality and layout of the space, whether you live in an RV or a manufactured home. One new prototype modular structure might just be the future of the industry – and it eliminates all of the compromises.

Ten Fold Engineering’s Unfolding Building Prototype looks just like a shipping container when it is stowed. This allows for easy transportation and easy installment with existing infrastructure. With the press of a button, this shipping container can turn into a luxury space complete with all of the furniture and finishings you need. The company hopes that it will be perfect for emergency shelters, permanent housing, and even businesses like restaurants and shops. Check out the interesting design below.
