Expanding House

Expanding House is a conceptual design for a country house. At the core of the idea is the building’s expanding ground plane, which ascends upward to shape the roof and sinks downward to form the floor.

Within the enclosure, the rooms expand and contract as mobile walls slide on a recessed metal track embedded in the flooring. During the day, the interior stretches into an open space, and at night contracts into moveable guest rooms.

Conceptual design by: Antonio Pio Saracino; Steve Blatz
