Housing in transFORMATION


A hybrid housing system to shelter contemporary life

Housing in transFORMATION


A hybrid housing system to shelter contemporary life
An oblique modular housing system, with the capability to change form according to the users’ needs.

What if we could hold on to our personal space through major life changes, like the birth of child or a start-of-business, without needing to change it altogether? Private space would be salvaged, much needed free space would be provided and unused space would be given a new purpose.

The proposed idea presents a housing system which is by default based on a flexible structural system, which allows for changes through the years. The modular-built houses nest inside the frame and can be easily altered. The transformable structure and the housing hybridization, with new habits and activities, in our case are expressed in the design, through the use of the oblique. By removing the predefined component of verticality, and adding a different, yet still experimental, dynamic to each space, through the manipulation of the angle. The hybrid spaces that occur comply with the basic idea that the House today is not just an array of rooms, but a hybrid space, with multiple possibilities.



The design of combined hybrid residence spaces is recommended, where the orientation of the oblique will be in sync with the habits and needs of the tenant.

Modular structure allows a variety of different combinations of front views, which adjust to various urban landscapes.

The interior space consists of multipurpose surfaces, the oblique walls are being used and the removable panels change daily.

The intended flexibility and adjustability is applied by using a steel structure, recommended for frequent changes.
