LE2 is the second prototype for an extremely small, highly functional, transformable line of apartments that are being developed as models for sustainable living. This version will test different material expression and modify certain functionality based on the experience of LE1. Conceptually, less space uses less material and less energy and unburdens the user with the requirement to fill multiple rooms that are only used part of the time. Everything is designed to provide multi-functionality and all furniture is built in to the walls and either folds or slides out to convert from, say a couch to a queen bed. All materials, finishes, fixtures and appliances are high performance, green certified and highly efficient.
