This home measures little more than 18 square meters, but it contains all the elements of modern urban living. The walls are clad in wood. The radiator hangs vertically. Gleaming white fittings and a white floor reflect light. And as befits well-planned small spaces, the bed occupies a raised platform, with storage below. The bed has been thoughtfully placed at the rear of the property and is therefore at the furthest point from the main road.
Ah, yes. There will always be a main road, because this home has been designed to fit inside the triangle created by two adjacent billboards.
“Every home has its advantages and disadvantages,” says Matej Nedorolík of Design Develop, the Slovakian agency that has come up with idea. The billboards’ electricity powers the house, which sits on stilts. The shower is built into one of the angles.
Nedorolík, 26, works as a sales representative at a spa in the city of Banská Bystrica. He and his colleagues at Design Develop are all recent graduates. “Project Gregory,” as they have named this initiative, was the brainchild of a friend who came up with the design for his final degree, and wishes to remain anonymous.
