If you share your plumbing-based functions, your three-storey micro apartment can become portable. New CLT micro-living spaces provide neo-archaic biourbanism spacial modules that can be erected overnight! If that doesn’t make you feel good, Austrian fibre producers are launching a new luxury fabric made entirely from sustainable wood that will mimic silk.
