Designed as a proposal for Buildner’s 2023 MicroHome Competition Edition, ‘3 Scenes of Homes’ is a concept design by Studio Supra-Simplicities. It’s a micro-cabin set on a rapidly rotating screen, allowing you to integrate and switch between three different ‘scenes’ of living or rooms. The cabin spins around quite theatrically, completely redefining what a conventional cabin or home can be!

The microcabin seamlessly integrates three spaces: sleeping, eating and washing. It rotates rapidly, using the theatrical function of a stage, to bring the bedroom, dining room and bathroom into the spotlight one step at a time. The structure, in turn, occupies a minimal footprint, eliminating the need for unnecessary circulation spaces and providing the space with a flexible lifestyle. It covers only a small amount of space on the site and recycles rainwater for daily use through its rooftop collection system. This reduces the external impact of the home.
The three rooms are perfectly encapsulated in a cylindrical volume of wood. Volume has been imparted with a rotating stage mechanism, which allows scenes to blend into each other while maintaining a level of distinction. The rooms rotate and move relative to each other, like a theatrical scene change system. This completely eradicates the need for extra, unnecessary space such as hallways, hallways, and other areas between rooms. He creates a home that is dynamic, flexible, and theatrical, unlike any other home we’ve likely seen.
A shoebox-like volume at the entrance of the house separates the entire cottage into two sections: Front of House and Back of House. The front of the house is an open space with natural light pouring in, while the back of the house is hidden in darkness. When a room or scene is turned to the front, then it can be used; Otherwise, it cannot be used when it is placed at the back of the house. This is quite similar to the way a theater stage is used.
A rainwater harvesting system has been installed above the revolving microcabin. It collects, stores, and provides water to residents for their daily use. The system is supported by gravity and consists of a rainwater collection tank, vortex filter, and drainage pipes that filter out toxic and harmful particles. The clean water is then converted into drinking water using a reverse osmosis device, creating a water supply for the various rooms. Ultimately, all wastewater flows into a centralized collection of sewer pipes, which then leads to an underground septic tank where it is stored and treated.
