Hank Bought a Bus

As an architecture student that was tired of projects that would never be created, Hank Butitta decided to take his thesis in a different direction. Always dreaming of having a cabin in the woods, but unable to materialize it, Butitta decided to renovate a school bus into a 225sqft living space. What resulted was a consistent, continuous, and completely interchangeable space.


Materials were kept very simple to not only keep costs low, but to add to the simplicity and elegance of the space. At the end of this project, Butitta and up to a dozen of his friends took a month long journey to test its function.

This is a great example for us to learn from because of its versatility and functionality. This bus can be used for many different reasons, by a varied group and number of people. If you want to learn more about this project, Butitta’s website has a wealth of information and pictures, as well as a travel blog.
