Outline

LIFE CORE is a modular unit equipped with the basic infrastructure for living. It uses a specially designed pumping system to move water, so there is no need for underfloor or sloping pipes to promote gravity drainage. And, the unit is practically self-contained as it requires minimal tie-in with building systems, therefore it can easily be relocated to accommodate changing stages in life. LIFE CORE can be designed, fabricated and installed in a short amount of time for use in temporary housing in disaster zones, etc. LIFE CORE is installed in "The YUKUSA OSUMI UMINO GAKKO" converted from the closed elementary school. LIXIL, blue studio and Katassude will test the usability of LIFE CORE for commercialization.
