NEST mini house / habitation

NEST mini house

As a student, managing our dormitory room in order is a challenge for the space is limited, thus coming up with the idea of a mini house that offers teenagers, even newly graduated students, a place to live without high cost. The NEST is a combination of dormitory and loft. In such a mini space there’s not enough room for the folding mechanism(let alone the maintenance could be expensive) so the key point is the arrangement of every part. The sitting place—right beside the bed, just the other side of the ceiling. The vacancy above the entrance hall is arranged a desk and its bookshelf, and the shoes shelf also forms some steps of the ladder.
