Good building design, to paraphrase, can hide inside very small structures. At first glance it looks just like a full-sized luxury motor home – but the illusion of a large solid volume of spaces comes from a temporary tent-like structure.
This layered enclosure folds out of a remarkably sleek, compact and modern-looking trailer attachment many times smaller than the full-scale living-and-dining area that it can convert into. It is aptly named Opera, perhaps for its visual similarity to the famous music hall in Sydney, by designer Axel Enthoven.
Built-in cabinetry, hardwood floors, two beds, a toilet, hot and cold running water and LED lighting are all constructed as part of the core bottom structure, while the top tent area is crafted from thick canvas.
In short: this is the best of both worlds – luxurious motor-home-worthy features in the base and an extensive over-the-top cover for weather and privacy protection, all in an ultra-mobile attached trailer that can easily travel and consumes far less fuel than a full-scale camper.
