You can choose the design of your phone, your computer, and your car – so why not your condominium?

That’s what Chad Oppenheim, head of Miami-based Oppenheim Architecture & Design, asked himself while putting together his architectural thesis at Brown University.

The question became the impetus for his latest project: a condominium complex, set to be completed by the end of 2010, that takes a bottom-up, user-generated approach to constructing residential space.

Cube promotes its occupants to design their own domain with the possibility of connecting multiple cube modules vertically, horizontally, and diagonally in addition to creating double height volumes, garden voids and cantilevered living environments.

Sale of the 113 condominium units is on hold due to the market downturn. Penthouse and cantilevered units like the one in the top images will sell for $800/sf.

The cubes are available on a first-come, first-served basis, although you can’t book them online yet. Oppenheim says residents shouldn’t be forced to compromise.

“The goal is to create an innovative but simple structure that gives flexibility,” he says. “This is going to be the next tier of living.
