I am always attracted to Architecture which provides the possibly of spatial and environmental manipulation. I recently came across the ‘sliding house’ designed by dRMM which recognises a sleek and minimalist approach to adaptable living. Located in Suffolk, England the house features a unique enclosure which slides to reveal and dynamicly change the environment of the main house, guest house and greenhouse.
The mobile structure allows for constantly changing views, degrees of light and an always chancing concept of space, depending on the degree to openness and according to time of day, the weather, and the seasons.
Bad-Ass is a pretty good description for the sliding structure which is over 28 metres long and weighs over 50 tons.
