The D*Haus concept - modular dynamic house-transformer



Conceived for the harsh, climatic extremes the modular house-transformer can respond dynamically to its environment by mechanical adaptation to meteorological and seasonal conditions.

The flexibility of the D*Haus allows adaptation from day to night and winter to summer by literally moving inside itself. The thick heavy external walls unfold into internal walls allowing glass internal walls to become facades. Doors become windows and vice versa.

In the winter time, the house-transformer is in a square formation, with small surface area and small windows. It literally hugs itself. As the climate warms and seasons change, the house opens up, like a flower opens up to allow light and air to penetrate the inside of the building offering full panoramic views of the surroundings.
