This sci-fi home which rotates like a washing machine to create different rooms could be the future of city living.

Not only is it space-saving, but at £50,000 ($62,000) it could also be a good solution for people on tight budgets.

Designers have now built a prototype of the gravity-defying home and hope their neat 3x3x3 metre cube could transform the way we live in the coming years.

The Rotating House was designed by architect George Clarke and Sussex-based designer William Hardie. It is being unveiled at the Ideal Home Show this weekend.

The space, which could accommodate one person or a couple, changes between being a kitchen, living room, bedroom and hallway.

Instead of walking between rooms, inhabitants just flick a switch and the cylinder-space shape rotates to take them to their room of choice – no walking needed.

The bathroom and a control room are on either side of the rotating room and are static.

‘So many corners of traditional houses are unused’, said designer William Hardie.

‘George wanted to be an astronaut when he was a child – and this has a space station feel’, he told Sun Online.

Instead of using traditional materials, the hallway floor is made of fuzzy moss.

And rather than hanging up your keys when you get home, you attach them to a magnet on the wall.

Cupboards take coats and shoes which are all held in place using bungees. Cutlery and utensils are attached using magnets so they don’t fall on you in the bedroom.

At the back of the home is a control panel with a switch which controls how the room rotates.

LED lighting changes with each turn to change the mood of the room – so in the bedroom lights dim while in the dining room they’re much brighter.

The mirror in the hallway becomes a kitchen table which then becomes a TV in the bedroom.

The house is made from timber and aluminium and ‘uses every inch of space’ according to the designers.
