The Matilda Home, a special mobile living unit that can be placed in everywhere designed by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, founder and principals of Studio Fuksas, for Revolution Precrafted house series. Fuksas’ design can be conceived as a smallest living unit in the world, consisting of three-storey with a maximum comfort.
The Matilda Home is a polygonal structure that can also be reproducible by adding new modules, to be adaptable for every region. The design is comprised of two typical units -one of them consists of 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, closet and roof deck, occupying 201 square meters area in total. The materials used for the house are teak wood, marble and steel.
”The idea to bring design also in common life attracted us,” says Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas. ”This is a new concept of habitat of house. It’s a mobile home it can be everywhere around the world; everybody can be a client. It’s a modular unit so many of them can be added together like a cloud. It can even be a city.”
”This is not an object, it is a concept, it can be a city, a landscape or simply an home. Easy to build, it can be done in different materials more or less expensive. Matilda is a completely different space since nowadays we don’t need so much storage space, you just need to have a screen. The only thing is important is to have a nice place to eat, to seat and to sleep but also this can be done with something you close when you don’t need.”
”We tried to develop a new formula of the house because also we don’t know who is dedicated and the people who will be living in the house. First of all, it is a house but also a piece of art, sculpture and it is easy to build and can be done with different materials,” says Doriana Fuksas.
The 1-Bedroom and 2-Bedroom units’ dimensions are comprised of 18.72 meters L x 10.80 meters W x 11.70 meters H, while their total areas changing with 155 square meters and 201 square meters.
