For Salon del Mobile 2017 in Milan, MINI created a fabric house installation that examines the potential for low-impact, small-space living in urban environments. The installation, which is known as 'MINI LIVING - Breathe,' takes the form of a three-storey, multi-room dwelling that slightly resembles a tent-like structure. The residence was designed to occupy a previously unused block of 13' by 13' courtyard space and now shows off the design of potential living quarters for three people.
Breathe is complete with its own diverse range of living spaces, including a kitchen, dining area, a lounge and work spaces. Most interestingly, Breathe even has its own rooftop garden with a rainwater collection and purification system.
Best of all, Breathe's structure is flexible enough to be disassembled, relocated and dressed with different exterior fabrics to suit different climates.
