M-Velope Transformable Structure

Designed by Michael Jantzen, no no not me, this guy has a T before his Zen. The M-Velope® is 15′ high, 14′ wide, and 17′ deep and fully transformable. Michael builds each M-Velope with Accoya® wood products which the manufacturer says makes them durable and sustainable. He also sells these through Neiman Marcus for $100.000 plus delivery costs (that sound was my jaw hitting the ground). Michael Jantzen been doing outside the box design work since 1971. Photo credit Neiman Marcus, and a thank you to Katherine for passing this onto me.

    This M Velope for $100,000 is the epitome of how very silly most of this “cutting edge” housing really is. This applies to the more sensible tiny housing in a general way, because of land costs and militant zoning. But this silly thing, which would make a poor changing house at the beach, takes the prize. Nothing revolutionary going on here. What we have is a Gucci suit for $100,000. Bloody useless indulgence.

    Wow…I could buy 50 RVs, small boats, build 20 micro houses… house dozens of families…but…then again, that would be selfless…

    Hey, that looks like something you could make out of free pallets! No need to spend $100,000! Assuming you found an actual use for it that is. I guess you could always throw a tarp on top of it if you want it weatherproof, so there’s an extra couple of bucks for that.
