'maison go' by périphériques architects

périphériques architects are the creators of this very unique residence in thionville, france. the three story house is built with a metal frame and clad in metal and large expanses of glass. each layer is angled the opposite of the one below creating a wobbly effect. this distinct design really makes it stand out from the other similar suburban homes.

    rp says:
  • Context? form? environmentally sound? energy efficient ?… none of these I’m afraid It’s an attempt at a large sculpture for living that I feel will age terribly as well.
