Expander - Study on Optional Living

Based on the seasonal temperature fluctuations, work is being done on the compression and expansion of space. The two-layer structure of the outer skin can be dissolved depending on the temperature and used to expand the space in the terrace area. The expansion is linked to a simultaneous internal deformation of space. The clear, orthogonal body is transformed into a floor plan with diagonal room layouts and a new perspective. The well-worn feeling of living is dissolved every season and living is perceived anew.
