The brief was a self-form house to resign to so as to develop nourishment, captivate and appreciate the scene. The site offered a blend of moving England and rural Holland, controlled by stringent neighborhood Planning parameters for country advancement. A veritable energy about vernacular homestead structures shared by draftsman and customer/manufacturer prompted a control of the nearby timber encircled furthermore, clad “shed” maxim.


The result is three ordinary building frames with flighty itemizing, radical execution, and a major shock. A straight building of obvious straightforwardness is cut into three projects; house, carport and annexe. The carport is pulled off hub to make a yard between the three.


The arrangement is further characterized by material and shading; red elastic film and glass, red and dark recolored larch.


The shock: the isolated structures can be changed by a 20 ton versatile rooftop/divider fenced in area which crosses the site, making blends of walled in area, outside living and surrounding of perspectives as indicated by position. This is a self-sufficient structure; steel, timber, protection and unstained larch crossing recessed railroad tracks. Development is fueled by concealed electric engines on wheels incorporated into the divider thickness.


The tracks can be reached out later on ought to the customer wish to construct a swimming pool, which might require intermittent sanctuary.


Sliding House offers profoundly variable spaces, degree of asylum, daylight and protection. The dynamic change is a physical wonder hard to depict in words or pictures. It is about the capacity to fluctuate the general building organization and character as indicated by season, climate, or a remote-controlled longing to charm.
