The pentagonal house structure by Invisible Studio is the latest example of the micro home movement—an intended architectural method of utilizing sustainable and upcycled materials to build compact and often mobile residencies.
Dubbed 'Trailer,' the tiny gabled pentagonal house boasts a low-cost assembly. Invisible Studio used locally sourced timber and scavenged materials for the construction process of the 40-square-meter structure. The framework is supported by corrugated fiberglass and steel, while the interior is lined with plywood. The shape of the micro home is intended for its successful transportation on British roads and is meant to accommodate a variety of situations, including offering a "usable space that could act as a kit of parts for any self-builder to improvise around or easily adapt."
