The Push Button House Unfolds Five Rooms In 90 Seconds

push-button-house-1

Push Button House is the innovative house proposed by Adam Kalkin. It is practically a shipping container that unfolds in only 90 seconds, revealing a five room home, with a living room and dining room, a kitchen, a library, a bedroom and a bathroom. If, at first, the designer made a Illy café inside of a shipping container, this project goes beyond, recreating the spirit of a cozy dwelling.

Of course the space is not much, but having a room built on each of the five sides of the shipping container is really impressive and it’s more that I could have expected. The rooms are all made from recycled materials and the house has some hydraulic cylinders, controlled by a computer system, to allow the expanding.

Yet, not everything is perfect. Zero privacy and total exposure – I just wonder in what circumstances would someone want the Push Button House? I have to admit it is better looking at it, than actually living in it.
