Tricycle House and Garden

January 9, 2013 by


With space at a premium in dense urban areas, a temporary residence towed by a tricycle might appeal to some. Chinese architecture company People’s Architecture Office has designed Tricycle House and Garden–a sustainable single family home intended for people in China who can’t afford land or a house.


Shaped like an accordion,Tricycle House is constructed of lightweight plastic which gets folded into various configurations and expanded to create living space which can also be connected to other houses for increased space.


The house includes all the necessary facilities such as a stove, sink, bathtub, and water tank as well as multi-functional furniture which can be transformed from a bed into dining table.



When the house is combined with Tricycle Garden, the modular mobile home is complete with a front garden.


And, if you can hitch up to the Tricycle House and Gardens of your friends, you can combine them together as a compound–provided you find the available space.

    What a remarkable design. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy here in NYC, I continue to be intrigued with and inspired by the bicycle’s potential role in providing personal transportation, cargo hauling and delivery of relief supplies in emergencies. Perhaps temporary shelter should be added to the list? I look forward to sharing the link to this post with my readers. Thanks!
