SHIVER HOUSE

Client : Barfotastigen
Location : Korppoo, Finland
Status : Completed 2015

Shiver House is a radical reinvention of the common Finnish Hut (mökki). The project is a kinetic “animal like” structure which moves and adapts in response to surrounding natural forces. The Shiver House is an exploration into the idea that Architecture can be used as a means to create a closer emotional link between its inhabitants and the natural world it sits within. In addition the project explores the idea that Architecture can be made to seem “alive” with the intention that this will engender a deeper and longer lasting emotional relationship between people the structures we inhabit.
