THE CUBE, QB2

 

QB2 is an initiative of Dr Mike Page at the University Of Hertfordshire who set out to build a home with an internal size no bigger than 4x3x3 metres, in which two people could live a comfortable, modern existence with a minimum impact on the environment.

CUBE Brochure

 

Constructed from a variety of sustainable materials, The Cube provides everything that two people may need. Within it includes a lounge, with a table and two customer made chairs, a double bed, a full sized shower, a kitchen (with energy efficient fridge, induction hob, re-circulating cooker hood, sink with drainer, combination microwave oven and storage cupboards), a washing machine, and a composting toilet. Lighting is achieved by ultra-efficient LED lights, The Cube is heated using an Ecodan air-source heat pump, with heat being recovered from the extracted air. It has cork flooring and there is a 2 metre head room throughout. 

 

THE CUBE, QB MOVE

Another design of the Cube, by Dr Mike Page is QB Move. This concept has recently been shown on Gadget Man on Channel 4. This is a similar concept to QB2 but with moving walls to create better use of the space available.
