06 Jan Sliding house
Ross Russell and his wife Sally live in a small village in Suffolk (England) in the house, at first glance, it resembles a large barn. But the unassuming building with a rough architecture really is a unique project – “Sliding House» (Sliding house). Within a few minutes the roof can move out of the house, in the truest sense of the word.
Upper wooden facade of the building, hides a real home, put on the rails and with powerful motors can be moved at the request of the owner. Part of the “inner” house is made of glass, and in the summer provides an excellent platform for viewing stretched under high skies of England meadows and fields. In the chilly winter season when you want warmth and comfort, upper facade is a good protection against wind and weather.
