built in just seven days, house hemeroscopium by ensamble studio consists of seven prefabricated elements. the combination creates an architectural space of alternating heaviness and lightness, balance and instability. house hemeroscopium embraces a domestic space and a distant horizon. this is done through a combination of facilities, which contains the living spaces, bedrooms and kitchen. based on the basic principle of the lever, the design reinterprets the concept of weight.  the counterweight is a 20-tonne block of granite which is entrusted with the task of  balancing the whole system, which also is an aesthetic characteristic.
