Sliding House Apr 23, 2009

Wallpaper magazine, the source for high-end design, has a video up showcasing a man and his wife’s dream home. The house slides open within minutes, exposing large spans of glass and the beautiful summer sky.

Really great design. Sensible nods to the vernacular without compromising the modern, high tech nature of such an idea.

The cinematography reminds me of something KDlab would have done years ago, but in rendered form.

Joseph Kosinski is a maniac…

Thanks Ryan!

    What a great project. Both understated and radical.

    When I see architecture like this, it makes me want to get the hell out of Brooklyn, as much as I love it here, and back to a more rural area. My only (very audio-nerdy) critique would be that the acoustics (aural architecture) may be a little uninviting (from the reflection off of all of the glass) in some circumstances and may not complement the visual architecture appropriately. At the same time the acoustics may be amazing in other contexts in relation to the feel of the architecture. With a little bit of treatment to control reflections I would love to record there. Still makes me wish I had studied design in a more academic setting. Sorry if I sound like a pretentious douchebag – just bored at work. Pissed I won’t be in town for Kissena opening day.
