A vertical bathroom !

In some countries a people’s living space  has been becoming smaller and smaller. There might be few reasons : overpopulated city, too expensive rents, enjoying tiny minimalist architecture and design and many others. Probably the smallest parts of our homes are bathrooms and we want to save space as much as we can.

Saving space design

This vertical stainless steel bathroom full of secret shelves, toilet and even shower looks a bit like a space ship bathroom, right from the future!

“The Vertebrae” was designed by Paul Hernon and he got inspired mostly from functional modern architecture and from our own natural spinal system.

Each level of series independently rotating vertebrae serves for different needs. Toilet with side compartments, sink and basin, storage spaces and a shower with pull-out shower heads. All of these components can be folded up when not in use.

This design idea is not just for luxury hotels or offices to impress their customers but it is mostly a space-saving tactic for tiny personal apartments or condo bathrooms with no room for all of these amenities. Stainless steel gives it a futuristic look with a clean and modern feeling.

房价飙升催生集装箱住房

container house中国房地产指数系统2013年11月30日公布,11月份中国100个城市(新建)住宅平均价格较10月份上涨0.68%,低于10月份1.2%的涨幅,而且是四个月以来环比涨幅的首次收窄。不过该数据还显示,11月份新建住宅均价同比上涨近11%,刷新了10月份创下的10.4%左右的纪录。

2013年12月1日公布的另一项覆盖更多城市的房地产市场调查结果显示,中国新建住宅价格的涨势正在放缓。11月份,房地产服务提供商追踪的288个城市的新建住宅价格较10月份上涨0.77%,涨幅低于10月份的0.83%。11月份房价较上年同期上涨10.1%,10月份为同比上涨10.5%。

由此可见,中国整体房价放缓了增长的势头。这可能会给攒钱买房的老百姓一丝希望,但是经过近十几年的疯狂涨价,目前的房价水平还是让中产阶级和工薪阶层难以望其项背。

就拿上海而言,优越的城市规划,先进的公共设施,国际化的文化环境,不断吸引着偏远地区的农村打工者,附近城市的年轻毕业生以及留学生和外国人涌入其中。这种爆发式的人口增长会给城市带来许多挑战和问题冲突。首当其中的就是——房价,这也解释了为什么上海房价能在十几年的时间内一直保持着全国领先的增长势头。

然后矛盾在于房价的涨幅远远超过人均可支配收入的涨幅。不仅中国经济近年来增长放缓,而且社会资源分配结构依然存在明显的阶级化,这就注定了绝大多数辛苦工作的人还是无法承担疯狂的房价。生存压力随之而来。
