Unboxed: Surprisingly Spacious Flat-Pack House on Wheels

There’s a smart new design for mobile homes by Mehdi Hidari Badie. I’ve seen it featured on Dornob.com and TreeHugger.com so far. This flat-pack house on wheels is very a futuristic design that utilizes space efficiently. What everyone seems to fail to see is that this is very much a throwback to the original flat pack homes from the 1950’s. Everything old becomes new again!

Of course, there was no solar panels in the 1950’s and the newer technology is obvious but the design implication is very much there. The use of steel, plastics, aluminum and thermoplastic insulation is engineers dream come true. This could very well be what travel trailers and mobile homes become in the future.

      Hi Nousha,

      It looks to be a concept design that was entered into a contest. No builders have attempted them, yet.

      I’m sorry Brian, I believe this was just a concept home. No builder has produced it yet (but fingers crossed!)

    Too bad they had no interior shots. Very interesting and I love the solar part. These young designers are really stretching the envelope in a “good”way.

      Hi Michele! I found this awesome home on another site and I think it was just a concept home from a student and they haven’t been manufactured yet. I’d say in a few more years though we’ll be able to get something very similar. Ikea has a mobile home concept that’s a bit similar to this, too. I think they were just starting to produce them but haven’t seen anything about them in a few months.

      Sorry I couldn’t be more help!
