This is a concept commisioned us by a firm prefabricated wood houses for its “houses catalog”. How can we design an house without knowing where? Where is the best view? Where is going the sun ? we alaways hated the “catalog house” as such but, in any case, we’ve try to solve the problem. The traditional house programm, living and sleeping area distinct and separated on different floors, was conceptualized by making truly independent the two functional areas that in effect have different priorities. The living area should be alaways facing to the best view while the bedroom’s floor , upstairs, may also look beyond the usual conventional views, provided the roof are always facing south to capture maximum solar energy. Obviously the house is not moving, we have simply created a concept model that provides different possible configurations / versions as result of the interaction with the environment. Each location/environment creates a different version, unique and integrated into the landscape because it’s this context that generated it. At the same time, each version was made by “choices” of future users. From very traditional aesthetic to extremly modern not necessarily following the orientation rules. So the result, the house also represent the personality of those who will inhabit. The context, of which even people are part, is, in any case, the input to shape this house.
