Weather-friendly Sharifi-Ha house with semi-mobile rooms

SharifiHouse-2

Based in Tehran, the Sharifi-ha House by architectural firm Nextoffice is a beautiful space-saving home that comes with a set of assembly instructions. In summertime, Sharifi-ha House offers an open /transparent /perforated volume with wide, large terraces. In contrast, during Tehran’s cold, snowy winters the volume closes down, offering minimal openings and a total absence of those wide summer terraces. The three-storey house is based on a fixed main volume of the structure with movable areas present on each floor that can be rotated by a simple push of a button and lifting a stair to secure the room in place.
