Wallpaper House

Commissioned by Wallpaper Magazine, Moto was challenged to design an innovative small house of 100 square meters in a rural setting. The program evolved as an artist’s retreat, focused around two themes; first, the need to create two distinct spaces for living and working, and second, a means to fully close up the structure when not in use. The solution nestled one corner of the building into the dune of the seaside site. The exposed side deploys a wooden screen which pulls away from the house to open up the courtyard to the sky, while shaping a shaded car port. The painting studio rolls out several feet, cantilevering over the shoreline for unobstructed views.
 
 
 
 
 
“How do you showcase the world's best new talent? We asked them to show us what they could do.”

The simple move of rolling out the painting studio and carport radically re-organizes the spaces and changes the artist’s interaction with both the structure and the surrounding seascape.
