If you think the housing market is bad, or the rental market in a city like New York is ruthless, maybe all you really need is The Bufalino, a three-wheeled concept vehicle designed for transportation and shelter. When you need to get to the office, simply fold up the driver's seat and hit the gas. When you've left work for the day and you find a nice place to park your ride for the night, you can fold the seat back down into a bed and settle in for a good night's sleep.
The Bufalino, a mini-RV concept car from designer Corneliu Comanns, features a stove, a basin that works like a sink, and a connected water tank so you have running water, a small fridge, and both walls have slots for storing your clothes and personal possessions. There's even space for a desk and a workbench so you can get some work done if you feel like "working from home." Admittedly the Bufalino will likely never make it into mass production, which is just as well since there doesn't seem to be a toilet or a shower anywhere in the vehicle.
