PREFAB FRIDAY: O2 Student Village
We often get comments about how difficult it would be to live in some of the Prefab Friday homes that we have featured, and none have received more criticism than the Micro Compact Home (m-ch) which we recently featured in our Top 5 Tiniest Prefab Homes post. But the proof is in the pudding, and in 2006, the Technical University of Munich in Germany installed a small village of seven of these homes for six students and a professor to live in for a full year.
The village, which was launched last year, was designed by Professor Richard Horden of Horden Cherry Lee Architects with Haack Hopfner Architekten. Originally meant to last only for six months, the village proved so popular with students that their stay on it was extended to a full year.
