Single-Space House for Four People

Description
This project developes the idea of single space that is surrounded by the essential minimum of services, with kitchens and bathrooms pushed to opposite sides of single large space. A series of angled sections of wall provide the connecting point of concertina panels. The various permutations of the opening and closing of these panels gives a wide variety of potential space and use patterns. Areas can be connected with each other as well as isolated, though never acoustically. In the end, the occupation of the house, whilst suggestive of flexible use, is actually over-determined by the design. To live in these spaces with their interconnections and rooms opening off one another would demand a real commitment to the ideas of flexibility.
