A home is so much more than just a roof over one’s head – it’s the place where our individual and unique life is played out with all its complexities and nuances. For a wide variety of personal, economic and social reasons, there is a growing desire for retaining the identity of one’s home in spite of the demand for geographical mobility. Thus, the idea of portable houses is the architectural epitome of today’s independent but home-loving lifestyle.
Consequently, architects and designers are increasingly assigned with the development and design of relocatable residences. These compact, almost sculptural objects require clever solutions that satisfy all needs in a small space. Notwithstanding the great diversity of concepts, structures and styles, all homes presented in this volume fulfill the demand for exceptional and consistent design.
