AS TORONTONIANS LEARN TO LIVE ‘SMALL’, A CUBITAT MODULAR HOME MAY BE JUST THE TICKET

CUBE3 For the claustrophobic, living with a 10x10x10-foot cube might be a challenge. But for those ensconsed in shoebox apartments, a CUBITAT could fit quite nicely. It’s an entire home tucked into a cube – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room. Cupboards reveal laundry machines and a Murphy-style pull-out bed. Furniture and storage are included.

CUBE4The CUBITAT, shown at this winter’s TORONTO Interior Design Show, is still in the experimental stage. But with the rapidly increasing number of tiny apartments in this city (some as small as 300 square feet), a multi-faceted cube could be a concept waiting to take off.

CUBE2David Wex, co-founder and partner at TORONTO’s Urban Capital: “CUBITAT shows what can be done. It showcases an architectural product that the public can hypothetically order online.” Website: http://www.urbancapital.ca
