‘Hanse Rotor House’ by Luigi Colani

Designer Luigi Colani has created a space-saving house with a six square meter cylinder inside that contains a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. Called ‘Hanse Colani Rotor House’ it was designed for young professionals who need minimal space while they focus on career. The compact living space includes four rooms in one 36 square meter house.

The cylinder rotates left or right bringing the room you want into view of the main living room. There’s a separate toilet and a small hallway, and everything is controlled with a remote.

The avant-garde project deals intensively with the topic of house shapes of the future. In the living room, the functional areas of the kitchen, bathroom and sleeping area are rotated using the rotor technology. (This study cannot yet be built in series in this form. However, a prototype can be viewed at the works location Oberleichtersbach.)
