This building can be anything you want it to be.

The eco-friendly "NeighborHub" was designed by a team of Swiss students who wanted to reinvent community spaces. The building, which has movable walls and transformable furniture, can be used as a conference room, a private sleeping space, or a pop-up farmers market.

The structure is powered by solar energy. Rainwater is used in the rooftop garden and for the laundry machine. Even your waste is reusable, as it gets turned into compost.

The NeighborHub prototype was developed for a U.S. design contest, but it'll be brought back to Switzerland afterwards. Hopefully, it'll inspire more sustainable lifestyle solutions in — its home country and more.
