Design Inspiration: A Shape-Shifting House

Found on dwell.com, the architecture firm Olson Kundig created a home that “allows residents to be as integrated or removed from nature as they’d like to be.” The Shadowboxx House, nestled in the San Juan Islands in Washington, features shutters that can be folded down to protect the home from the cold, or held up to reveal a retractable glass wall. This stop-motion video¬†demonstrates just how adaptable the design of Shadowboxx is, as if it were a “kinetic sculpture built for living.”
