• Push a button, get a home

    Remember those movies where you press some button and a house folds open? It’s come true! Adam Kalkin’s Push Button House 1 is actually reality. He has demonstrated how industrial products can be repurposed as architectural elements or as entire homes! Originally the Push Button House was displayed at Art Basel Miami in 2005 and uses a standard shipping container as the structure of a home. Kalkin’s concept uses hydraulic power to lift and lower the sides of the shipping container, vastly expanding the usable living space. This design has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen as well as a living area. This is so cool. The next time the cops are after you, you can ACTUALLY hide your secret documents in your secret home.
