Flexible configuration

Art & Leisure

A flick of the wrist and a sofa can be turned into a bed. Today more than ever it’s important to have flexible household rooms.

Cue a Toronto-based company which has designed a donut-shaped skyscraper with windows inside and out.

The real revolution: all internal pillars and walls are mobile, meaning the shape can be configured in any way, from a versatile apartment to an open-plan office or hotel room.

Even balconies can be added. It’s all possible thanks to an easy-to-use modular construction system made from composite metal or mass timber.

The sustainable construction process means the tower could have twice the lifespan of a conventional building – without any additional costs.
