Nothing like relaxing in the sun while lying on the bed, don’t you think so? A creative design of the Urban Cabin in Beijing makes it possible. Having a surface of just 15 m2, it offers a high degree of flexibility and a lots of fun possibilities: a bed that slides outside, a wall that rotates to become desk or an hammock for relaxing on top of the roof. The walls also feature many holes to rearrange hangers and hooks where needed, see more on @mini.living . #MINI #MINILiving #UrbanCabinTour #GlobalVillage #BigLifeSmallFootprint #UrbanLiving #Beijing #China #bejingdesignweek #Architecture #Advertisement
Galaxy Soho | Zaha Hadid Architects | 2009-12 | Beijing ‘Four continuous, flowing volumes coalesce to create an internal world of continuous open spaces within Galaxy Soho – a new office, retail entertainment complex devoid of corners or abrupt transitions – a re-inventing of the classical Chinese courtyard which generates an immersive, enveloping experience at the heart of Beijing.’ Source: @zahahadidarchitects . #Architecture #ZahaHadid #Beijing #StoptheRocInBeijing

What do you think about the design of the Urban Cabin in Beijing? Reflection is the overall theme of it, so it's design is inspired by a reflection on one of the cities most traditional living concepts, the Hutong: a form of courtyard residencies that combine private and public space. Through the reflecting materials used and the telescope mirrors on the ceiling, the Urban Cabin reflects the environment and its modern architecture. It also invites the visitors to reflect about the space in Beijing and how they see the growth of the cities in the future. MINI LIVING will also be in Shanghai next year, this time with the first habitable residential project of an innovative co-living concept. Looking forward to seeing it finished! . @mini.living #MINI #MINILiving #BigLifeSmallFootprint #UrbanCabinTour #GlobalVillage #UrbanLiving #Beijing #China #bejingdesignweek #Architecture #Advertisement
‘Banca Catalana’ building | Enric Tous + Josep Maria Fragas | 1979 | Barcelona . The building consists of three octagonal and organic towers covered with vegetation that hangs on continuous platters. The most surprising thing about this building is the design of vertical landscaping, the work of Jordi Aguilar with a complex irrigation system. The three modules are joined in the form of a triangle with a lower octagonal building preceding the entrance. The architects Tous i Fargas incorporate in their works, between the sixties and seventies, features of Japanese and American architecture, the use of new materials and new technologies, thus moving away from the dominant Spanish architecture of the time. . #Barcelona #architecture

The weather can’t be better these days in Beijing to enjoy one of my favorite details of the MINI LIVING Urban Cabin: the golden kaleidoscope ceiling above the central space (that one with a swing I showed you on my stories). It not only enlights the interior making it seem bigger and brighter, but also reflects the immediate environment you can observe from the interior. Imagine how cool it can be to be able to swing observing the environment trough the periscope. I’ve already tried! ;) . @mini.living #MINI #MINILiving #BigLifeSmallFootprint #UrbanCabinTour #GlobalVillage #UrbanLiving #Beijing #China #bejingdesignweek #Architecture #Advertisement

MINI LIVING is traveling the world to show how creative use of space can turn into real solutions for urban habitats with their Urban Cabin. There were previous editions in London, New York and Los Angeles and now is the turn of Beijing. This time they have collaborated with local architecture studio Penda @penda_china . They see the architecture as a bridge to connect nature, culture and people to strive for a better quality of living. . @mini.living #MINI #MINILiving #BigLifeSmallFootprint #UrbanCabinTour #GlobalVillage #UrbanLiving #Beijing #China #bejingdesignweek #Architecture #Advertisement
