Wrap House

Wrap House has a close affinity with the modernist project in its determined singularity of idea. Wrap House explores a strategy of surface as a device for creating a place of enclosure and light, while interacting with its context in an immediate and responsive manner. A simple surface is folded and wrapped. All internal partitions are located centrally, free from the external envelope. The internal space of the house is modulated to ebb and flow. This approach creates a new type of spatial condition that differs greatly from the homes of last century. The design of the house employs ‘access for all’ principles to allow its clients to age comfortably within it.
