The M-velopes by Michael Jantzen

This M-Velope is one in a series of functional art retreat structures designed to be used as special places in which to escape from the norm. These structures vary in size and shape, and most are made of sustainably grown wood that is colored with environmentally friendly stains or paints. In every case, the design of the M-velope’s are generated from simpler forms that are subdivided, hinged together, and folded in or out of the original form in order to create unexpected transformations.

The M-velope shown here is approximately twelve feet tall, twelve feet wide, and twenty feet long. The basic structure can be made larger, and/or the space inside can be increased by joining the M-velopes together. The slotted panels, support frame, floor, and ramps, all break down for shipping and can be reassembled almost anywhere with little or no foundation, depending on the site specific requirements.
