The conceptual house in the landscape as a form of living for the family. the individual necessaries of life of each habitant become the programatic content.
We analyzed the habits and asked each family member to create a pictogram of their dreams. Then we discussed the background and the vision of the future coexistence with the parents and the children. In the shifthouse common spaces are organized around the ‘lightyard’ in the center of the house for family activities. The landscape is interpreted as a folding system that floats, moves, dismantels, detaches and therefore defines open and enclosed spaces. The building developes processive between landscapeparameters and userprogram. The choosen materials support the concept into the detail in the optic, haptic and autitiv perception.
