5. CO-CROSS

MEAN* for USM

The winner of USM’s Live-Work challenge, Co-Cross by Dubai firm Middle East Architecture Network (MEAN*) is a ‘machine for working and living’. The conceptual residence is based on a modular, cross-shaped unit – one that foregoes rooms for partitions. ‘The idea is that Co-Cross can be set up in any empty space and transform it into a functional live-work set-up.’
