All of the exterior panels of the M-house are hinged on a frame so you can fold them in different ways and change the shape. The hinges allow the panels to fold into or out of the cube frames to perform various functions. Some panels are insulated, contain windows and doors, and can be manipulated to form enclosed spaces for living. Uninsulated panels can fold in or out to shade the sun, deflect rain, or block wind. Others unfold to provide platforms for sitting, working, eating, or sleeping.
