The BlobHouse is a green house prototype which is being developed since 2009 as part of the ICDS Arch research programme. This house it is unique in its way of being a green house as it is designed to match the current economic climate which the world has.
We’ve done research in world wide trends in terms of jobs and economic sustainability and we came to the conclusion that the world needs a change tot the residential market, as there it is not a solid design to sustain and incorporate a green agenda to the meet a Kyoto protocol in world of green development. Our research show an increase in singular entrepreneurial person which are running their own business from home. Other increase is in people working for companies from home. In order to provide a healthy and comfortable environment for these people, the BlobHouse has developed its unique strategy in matching requirements aimed at universal usage for those who work, or own a business environment from home.
The access to the house is made via the enclosed garden which leads to the lounge and the kitchen of the house. A stair leads to the work module which is facing the south of the house to keep the office cool, while the office is also providing heath which is conserved and used to warm up the house.
From the lounge you also have access to the bedrooms above . Also above you will find the toilets which act as duo for office and residential use.
The house has been developed to meet plasticity of intersecting transparency in the whole house, where everything looks private from outside and public inside, where everything is familiar and open.
By incorporating these modules together was with the aim to bring down the cost you spend on your services, but also to give that sense of living the green. Also we wanted to keep the private part of the office routine and not interfere with the lounge, where in most cases of house developments it was a problem.
The Work module sits above all modules and provides views from wide screen covering the module. At the bottom of the module you will find the reception area where the secretary and archives sit. At the top you will find an open plan space to accommodate up to five people.
If you ever ask yourself how this façade will be possible to manufacture from glass, you will find that we’re using only only green materials from which can be recycled. The façade will be made from thermoplastic which gives us the opportunity to make the globe to look like this. This is a prototype and some divisions are made to incorporate and maintain a portability of the house as well.
We will post any new developments which we will find suitable for the open public.
