The abode of the outside (automatic and intelligent house) in Rome, Italy by altro_studio

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Article source: altro_studio

The form of this 80ms house  derives from the tracks drawn on the ground. It is a simple shape, characterized by a pure geometry (the parallelepiped) and, like the rest of our projects, it is not governed by the quest for an architectural shape conceived exclusively like something changeable, what is the really matters is the expression of a concept represented in its essence. So the grid, characterized by 3×3 meter panes, becomes the location of the movement; a space in which the motion expression entrusted to the architectural elements generates a dimension of the “Undefined”, a space “out of itself” in which total absence reigns.

Article source: za bor architects

The project has been developed specially for popular TV show “Dachniy Otvet” (Eng: “The village talks”). The idea of the show is that for those owners of country houses and cottages, who agreed to participate in the experiment, the invited designers or architects do re-planning of a part of their village. The important moment is that the house owners pay nothing for reconstruction, but at the same time they can’t influence the result, so it comes always unexpected for them. The architects in their turn try to offer the most original solutions.
