Putting a contemporary spin on traditional mews buildings, British firm Geraghty Taylor Architects has designed Livinhome, a row of six gabled structures sporting a mod, orange-and-white facade. Like the Songpa Micro Housing project in Seoul, South Korea boasting transformable interiors, Livinhome is also an attempt to create highly flexible spaces. According to the designers, the interior space can easily convert from a single house, to duplexes, to smaller apartments, and potentially to offices and shops as well. They consider this a measure of sustainability, through which communities can "recycle and re-use their housing assets."
