An idea becomes reality
The principle is that the house can rotate, allowing active energy gain to be maximised through the solar radiation into windows and solar systems. The building was clearly designed according to the form follows function principle. In the architectonic design, we were able to take a reading of the constructions supporting structure over the roof and optimise the geometric constraints to minimise heat losses through the outer shell (cylinder + ball = the smallest possible object surface in relation to capacity).
You can choose to rotate the house using a time-synchronised electric motor or manual motor operation. The drive wheel is also connected to an exercise bike so the house can be rotated with muscle power alone. Residents and visitors really enjoy being able to rotate their own house!
A wooden house
Naturally, the house was made wooda wonderful, sustainable building material. This allowed us to achieve a healthy living environment and help to improve our planets CO² balance.
What does living in a rotating building feel like?
Its my home; a place where everything feels right. Once youve lived in a house like this, youll never want to live anywhere else.
Theres a certain something about their home that you can see delights residents.
