Make sure to check part one of our continuing "Designing the Hab" art preview.
The Hab is designed to serve as the main living area for the Hermes and Heracles crew, so it will be a tightly knit and practical space full of dense detail. This week we want to highlight a couple new areas within the Hab and talk briefly about their design.
The laundry and bathroom unit combine into one compact space that utilizes more of the recessed wall space. The shower, sink, and toilet are all located up a ladder-like set of stairs and behind the area that houses the washer, dryer, and cabinet space. Combining these units would be a logical way to reserve less space for plumbing across the Hab.
Next we have the bunk sleeping quarters. There are six bed spaces divided across the main walkway with a large table. The table can be used for research, repairing equipment, or anything that requires a little counterspace. Each bunk is equipped with personal locker space, a sliding isolation door, and even a digital screen with a built in radio. Eventually there will be photos, letters, and other personal items that decorate each crew members’ bunk.
We are all very satisfied with the direction the Hab is going. Improvements are being made everyday and we can’t wait to finish adding in all the details that make up this complex living space. Our next big hurdle in the art for Lacuna Passage will be the Greenhouse - so be sure to check back to catch more on its development in the near future. As always, feel free to comment below!
