Sliding House

Click the animation below for a video at Wallpaper* of dRMM Architects' Sliding House in Suffolk, England.



  1. I'm torn on this project. On the one hand, it's a rather nicely detailed take on the whole Monopoly gable profile. On the other, it is suuuuuch a gimmick. You know that thing is going to break down. It would be interesting to see how this house ages.

  2. If the owner cares for it, the building in its current working state might age well. It's as much upkeep as the design of the mechanics and everything else. I too find the architecture appealing, regardless of the movable parts.
