Motor home from school bus
• house on wheels of the school bus
A graduate of the Faculty of Architecture Hank Butita bought an old school bus for $ 3000 for his graduation project. 15 weeks and $ 6,000 spent on equipping the bus and motorhome for Hank and his friends decided to make a trip across the United States, was ready.
A total area of 225 sq. foot mobile home is a large room with LED lighting. The territory is divided into four main areas: bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedroom. Wherein the zone can be changed by creating different combinations, depending on the need and the situation. Well let's see how a simple school bus turned into an unusual house with all amenities.
A school bus may not be the most elegant vehicle, but for sure this memorable way of traveling will bring a lot of positive emotions and memories Hank and his friends.
This project proves that even a small house with a simple detail can be more valuable than the comprehensive large-scale project. The main tasks in the design phase was the development of a residential area. To achieve this, Hank rule out the presence of any furniture above. Thus, it is headed for the feeling of continuous space in the bus.
To the bus did not resemble its original purpose of the school bus, Henk moved the entrance to the rear of the car. Upon entering the first room that we see - it is a bathroom.
The kitchen occupies an area of two windows. It is planned to make the built-in refrigerator and a gas stove set, but now they are cooler and portable handheld tiles.
Seats are transformed into sleeping and if we expand them, all together, they form an enormous sleeping area.
