The Original Rubik's Cube is a 3-D combination puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik.
That was the source of inspiration to solve the client's puzzle, who demanded a lot of uses in a limited space.
The presented cube is a multi-functional, mobile workstation of 2.5-meter width, length, and height that features a compact, space saving and power saving unit.
This mobile cube is conceived for small spaces to gives wide versatility to a multi-use room.

Certainly this is the mind of the architect's intelligence, which compresses the various uses of the four spaces all together in one unit, the provision of space, limits the use of materials, reduces costs, as well as the multiplicity of functions that would add a new dimension to the design of the spaces and adds a new definition to achieve sustainability in the field of Green Architecture Interior.
