San Francisco architectural firm SpaceFlavor has gone zen for their latest project, a prefab mobile living space that’s designed to correspond with certain principles of feng shui. Like a matryoshka doll, the modest cubic structure can be easily partitioned or swiveled along its base to creates sub-rooms within a larger, encompassing living area.

Commissioned by Bay Area feng shui expert, Liu Ming, the eight-foot plywood cube has room to accommodate an office, a bed, storage and a meditation space. The modular design allows Ming to reconfigure his loft while ensuring that his personal space is kept intact.

To minimize space and allow for easy relocation, the steel frame and plywood pieces were prefabricated to fit through a standard 3-foot wide door and designed to be assembled on-site with regular DIY tools. The cubic form conceal two sliding doors/walls, translucent roller shades, and casters that allow Ming to orient the cube in relation to the Chinese lunar calendar.
