Students from University of Karlsruhe, Germany, Christian Zwick and Konstantin Jerabek have designed this unique experimental revolving house called Roll It, based on the concept of “mobile and space-efficient construction”. The design offers flexible housing in a minimum space. The cylindrical house features a very unique interior setting which changes its functions depending on the orientation. The workspace in one position becomes bedroom when rolled 180 degrees and the kitchen becomes bathroom. The center of the structure can be used both for sports activities as well as for lighting control.

The structure of the house consists of an outer shell which is composed of four supporting rings, a torsion inner shell and membrane as covering. The interior of the house features several individual living solutions like table and workspace which convert into sleeping zone with mattress held in position using Velcro. The blankets, pillows and other things can be stores under it. The sink, toilet and a stove are located in the front section of the house.
