PACO: A Second Skin From Tokyo

  • Japanese architects Jo Nagasaka and Schemata Architecture Office have designed the PACO. PACO is a complete house in a cube of three by three meters.

    PACO is intended to be a second home. The unit is replacable and fits into all sorts of landscapes and urban atmospheres: for holidays at the beach or at raw urban sceneries. It has the minimum equipment to live in spite of all its size. The box has a hinged roof and contains  a hammock, desk, sink and shower.

    The architects created PACO as a conceptual model to investigate a new, more flexible lifestyle. Which might be impossible for now, but certainly is an issue for the future.
