Dubai may soon get homes that adapt to season

24.11.2014
London-based architects have proposed a revolutionary concept - a house that can respond dynamically to its environment by controlled adaptation to seasonal, meteorological and astronomical conditions. Dubai's real estate sector has always made headlines and now an architect firm in London is looking to provide the emirate with yet another ground-breaking project - a house that adapts to the seasons.
At a whopping AED11 million, David Grunberg and Daniel Woolfson of D*Haus Company, have proposed a concept house that can respond dynamically to its environment by controlled adaptation to seasonal, meteorological and astronomical conditions.
The design is based on the work of Henry Dudeney, an English mathematician, who invented a way to cut an equilateral triangle into four pieces that could be repositioned into a square.
“The largest part of the house will remain stationary with solid foundations (plumbing, electrics and services),” the spokesperson said to Emirates 24/7, adding, “Each of the component of house will be sealed from the elements to keep internal spaces weatherproof, and when the modules link together, a sealed connection similar to a car door will allow transition from one space to another.”
The flexibility of the house allows adaptation from winter to summer and day to night, by literally moving inside itself.
“D*Dynamic literally unfolds itself like a Rubiks Cube,” the company says.
