HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Part home, part of­fice, en­tirely high­tech, this mo­bile liv­ing space brings a touch of the high life to the road

F1 Racing (UK) - - PRO -

Ev­ery mo­torhome makes a state­ment about its owner’s brand val­ues and per­son­al­ity: a func­tional place to do busi­ness, a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment in which to host guests, a snug track­side home away from home, cos­set­ing and in­su­lat­ing the oc­cu­pants from weather and noise… a mo­torhome is all of this and more.

Cre­ated by Hus­lig Col­lec­tive, an in­ter­na­tional de­sign firm spe­cial­iz­ing in VIP air­craft in­te­ri­ors and mo­torhomes, and en­gi­neered and built by Schuler Fahrzeug­bau Gmbh, this multi-func­tional mo­bile liv­ing space can serve as a team of­fice, hospi­tal­ity suite, driver ac­com­mo­da­tion, or even a high-end res­i­den­tial mo­bile home. The wel­come be­gins out­side with a com­fort­able pa­tio space, lead­ing via an elec­tric door (which can be se­curely op­er­ated with fobs or cam­era-con­trolled ac­cess) into a spa­cious hall cur­rently con­fig­ured with two di­vans and a din­ing ta­ble for 10; it can eas­ily be re­con­fig­ured as a team-din­ing space seat­ing 30. Serv­ing buf­fet cab­i­nets cater for guests’ ap­petites, an en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre with video game sys­tems and a 65-inch tele­vi­sion of­fer seden­tary sat­is­fac­tion, while be­hind a bar unit and move­able wall di­vider there is a gym space with sta­tion­ary bike, tread­mill, free weights, ping pong ta­ble, and an­other 65-inch tele­vi­sion. LED down­wash light­ing and win­dow shades pro­vide pri­vacy as well as flex­i­ble con­trol of the in­te­rior am­bi­ence.

To the right, ac­cessed through con­ve­nient dou­ble doors, the ser­vice trailer ac­com­mo­dates a restau­rant-style kitchen with in­duc­tion cook­top, oven, ex­haust fan, ex­press dish­washer and sink. At the rear a large stor­age area en­ables cater­ing for a crowd with mul­ti­ple re­frig­er­a­tors and freez­ers, stor­age shelves, and a full-size washer and dryer. The ser­vice unit fea­tures its own apart­ment space with a di­van, bed, desk and 32-inch tele­vi­sion as well as a shower. To com­pletely fa­cil­i­tate in­de­pen­dence there are clean and waste wa­ter tanks, along with ad­di­tional gen­er­a­tor sys­tems and a satel­lite up­link sys­tem. The trailer also in­cludes a spin­dle lift floor in the

rear stor­age area for load­ing con­tain­ers

(or even two cars).

Along the left out of the hospi­tal­ity area you en­ter the in­ner sanc­tum, the two-storey ‘Skyrise’ unit fea­tur­ing a sep­a­rate ground­floor meet­ing and din­ing area, lux­u­ri­ously ap­pointed in the finest ma­te­ri­als and ser­viced by a sep­a­rate kitchen to the rear. Fea­tur­ing Gagge­nau ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a French-door fridge with freezer, a con­vec­tion oven with high-heat pizza and ro­tis­serie func­tions, a mi­crowave, a five-burner in­duc­tion cook­top with down-draft ven­ti­la­tion fan, plus a dish­washer, the kitchen is trimmed in a com­bi­na­tion of high-gloss Rosso Corsa and car­bon fi­bre, with pol­ished stain­less steel counter tops. Re­mov­able el­e­ments en­able the meet­ing space to be rapidly re­con­fig­ured into a 160cm by 200cm sleep­ing area, with a 55-inch tele­vi­sion con­cealed in a re­tractable cab­i­net.

Up­stairs the ‘Skyrise’ unit extends side­ways to dou­ble the width of the ground floor, en­com­pass­ing a large lounge with a three­p­er­son di­van, two leather Eko­rnes re­clin­ers with ot­tomans, and two sin­gle chairs. A 65-inch tele­vi­sion set in a leather-pan­elled wall, lux­u­ri­ous throw rug over lam­i­nate floor­ing, com­bined with tall, wrap-around win­dows screened by mo­torised shades of­fers the sooth­ing am­bi­ence of home. Else­where on the top floor you’ll find a flex room which can be used for physio work or as an of­fice space, a lux­ury bath­room with walk-in shower, and two spa­cious bed­rooms with wall-mounted tele­vi­sions and am­ple hang­ing space for clothes.

Be­hind the scenes this hy­drauli­cally self­lev­el­ling trailer unit fea­tures clean and waste wa­ter tanks and a large gen­er­a­tor, en­abling it to be fully self-sup­port­ing and self-con­tained with no need for ground-based hook-ups.

It has a Cre­stron sys­tem to al­low con­trol of light­ing, cli­mate, win­dow shades and en­ter­tain­ment from mul­ti­ple con­trol lo­ca­tions – in­clud­ing from ipads. The en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem has in­ter­net ac­cess, mul­ti­ple satel­lite de­coders, blu-ray play­ers, Ap­ple TV units and a stream­ing video server.

Cur­rently of­fered for sale with three Mercedes Ac­tros trac­tor units, this amaz­ing con­struc­tion is the per­fect go-any­where, do-any­thing team home-from-home.
