Project Summary: Students retrofitted an old school bus into a sustainable living space to address cost and energy efficiency concerns within the residential housing sector. Through the implementation of a dynamic interior arrangement and an experimental heating and cooling system, the project's goal is to demonstrate that living spaces can achieve low carbon and spatial footprints without sacrificing comfort.
