Showing up being an oversized purple barn, design and design studio dRMM‘s Sliding home has a even more complex facade than its doppleganger’s A-frame design. The task encompasses three separate buildings (residence, garage, and visitor annex), and had been constructed with the intention for the owners to develop food, entertain, and enjoy the landscape through the framework. Each section of the Suffolk, The united kingdomt home is linked from a 20 great deal, motor-driven enclosure which slides up-and-down the buildings to generate continuously switching coverage for residence, and exposes open-air living areas.

A getaway from fixed design, the house offers its inhabitants endless choices for living comfortably and easily during each season. There is certainly even the choice to increase the roofing system beyond its existing size to cover a pool if owners desire to add one down the road.

The innovative residential project was completed in 2009, and was the 2009 winner of the Royal Institute of British Architects East Award, and winner of “Best New-Build” and “Home associated with Year” on 2009 Grand Designs Awards. (via The Gasoline Station, Design Milk)
