Shipping crate opens up to a posh house

Insane, that’s what this is. Thanks to the sharp-eyed folks of My Modern Met, we’ve just discovered the Push-Button House by architect Adam Kalkin. Basically the walls of a shipping crate completely flip open via hydraulic action into a pretty impressive living space. The only bummer is that it’s not an actual house but an installation. Then again, who says we can’t daydream? Already, Kalkin is working on a follow-up to the Push-Button — dubbed Push-Button House 2 — which will be expanded to a five-room room for even more room for greatness.
