Life Improving Guide

The Bunkie prefab concept by Evan Bare and Nathan Buhler

An upshot of collaboration between Evan Bare of industrial design firm 608 Design and Nathan Buhler of architectural design firm BLDG Workshop, The Bunkie is an amazing example of small space architecture that focuses on three modes – Sleep, Play and Open. The concept involves reduced impact materials and uses CNC detailing from furniture manufacturing for use in prefabricated construction. The whole project was born out of an experiment in ideas that cross boundaries between architecture and furniture design.

The Bunkie, with its transparent design, integrates seamlessly into the landscape and its multi-use character suits both expanding families and recreational activities with its three operating modes. The Bunkie can be made in a factory and then transported flat packed to the project site. The interior of the Bunkie has been designed to make the most of small spaces. The “Sleep” mode features two queen sized Murphy beds. The “Play” mode is a table and a set of four chairs built-in into the main wall. The “Open” mode offers space for yoga, reading or even ice fishing.
