MõTUS HOUSE CHARACTERISTICS
This private residence has two definitive characteristics:
1) (Mõ; Mõtus - moving, movement, motion) External transformation of the main living area and office/studio through movement of retractable screens and insulated shells that allow for control over day-lighting, heat gain, openness, and privacy.
2) Mõtus house offers the choice of immersion in nature by creating a transformative all-glass (glass walls, floor & ceiling) enclosed main living area and office. This is a challenge to maximize sustainable features while not losing the soul of the house. Many contemporary sustainable homes are super insulated and as a result are mostly introverted with limited windows and therefore limited views and interaction with the surrounding environment. This house attempts to find a new balance of spatial quality, embracing nature and using mechanical means to alter exposure and heat gain when needed with retractable screen and shell.
MOVEMENT & TRANSFORMATION
(Mõtus: moving, motion, movement) The operation of the retractable sun screen and retractable insulative shell of the living area are best understood as analogous to removing layers of clothing with regard to change in weather and are used in a similar climatic response. This area of the house features a moving shell, screen and glass panels providing variable levels of privacy, day-lighting, heat gain and airflow throughout the day.
This living and dining area has virtually unlimited combinations of screen and shell positions. The screen and shell ride within tracks and are moved easily producing a completely transformative environment at the owner’s whim or set automatically to adjust to changing climatic variables.
