Those of you who detest minimalist aesthetics (and experimental architecture) might want to turn away their eyes and skip this post, because the creation of Jo Nagasaka & Sschemata Architecture Office Ltd is about as minimal as they come. The 3 meter cubed structure is less a home and more of a room in a literal box, with amenities such as a table, pull out bed, an in-floor toilet with shower, and a hammock that hang from the pop-top ceiling...

The box structure operates with a roof that opens via hydraulics, which also gives open air access for hammock mode. Everything pops out from sections of the slick white epoxy cube's interior and exterior, including the desk and sleeping quarters.

Lighting is provided with two LED lights and a skylight up above. At the amusement or horror, depending upon your perspective, the hole in the floor bathroom doubles up as both a toilet and a place to sit while showering.

Details about hooking up the Paco to water and power, floor plans, and additional info about the Paco design is available here.
