Prefab Preview: TRAILER BAR

R+U Trailer Bar

See how an old classroom trailer gets a chic facelift with R+U‘s TRAILER BAR, on display at Palm Springs Modernism Week, February 14-24, 2013.

Standing by the philosophy that “designing something new does not mean starting from scratch,” R+U’s innovative approach to upcycled modular architecture results in reduced costs, quicker production, lower energy consumption, and less waste – all while being well-designed.

R+U Trailer Bar Floor PlanWith its sleek, circular bar and lounging area, TRAILER BAR will offer Modernism Week guests 480 square feet of unique space for entertaining. As a single piece, the unit can be easily transported and installed as a fun alternative to a traditional cabana or guest house.

Designed by award-winning architect Robert Anderson, TRAILER BAR includes a powder room, stainless steel appliances, a wine rack, and margarita-colored onyx countertops. Doors run the length of the unit. The middle doors fold and stack, while the doors at the ends swing out to become stylish walls for the deck. Decks, trellises, and other exterior additions are separate and will be constructed on site.
