Architecture Student Bought a School Bus and Turned It Into Cozy Mobile Home

ADVERTISEMENT

As a graduate architecture student, Hank was tired of seeing architecture projects that never left the drawing board. So when it came time to come up with a final project, Hank did what was obviously the only logical solution – he bought an old school bus and, together with his brother and a friend, spent 14 weeks converting it into a modern, well-designed mobile home that can host up to 12 people complete with beds, a kitchen, a bathroom and two skylights.

Most of the furniture in the bus is modular, so it can be moved, stowed away or converted to different functions. The queen-sized bed can be made into a seating or dining area, and most of these modular pieces of furniture also include storage space. The kitchen consists of a pump sink with plans for an on-board refrigerator and gas cook stove in the future. Rounding out the list of home comforts is the small portable bathroom in the back of the bus.

Hank designed his modern take on the RV as an impulsive, last-ditch effort to come up with something for his graduate thesis project. “In order to design and build a bus in 15 weeks, I didn’t have time to focus on anything but the physical construction of the bus.” Luckily, the plan seems to have worked, and Hank‘s bus is making the rounds on the internet as more and more people want him to see his project through. He‘s currently taking the bus for a spin across America to check its viability as a mobile living space in different environments, from national parks to major cities.

    There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw
