6 x 6 x 6 house
student project
single day charrette


The premise of the exercise was to design a house in a 6 meter cube, with a chosen work of art in mind.

This house was designed to ‘guard’ an ancient painting, buried deep in a desert.

The house is supported by four hydraulic columns, extending the views when ‘guarding’,
and lowering into the ground for protection and contemplation of the painting.
