PATH is bringing a new meaning to the sustainable architecture and design with the new rotatable house called 359.
The house has been developed in Portland, USA and it can be manually rotated to soak up or shun the sun rays, thus making it warmer in winters and cooler in the summer season.
The manual rotation is the result of the turntable on which the house rests. Albeit its manual rotation, the house is easy enough to be moved even by the kids as seen in this video:
The 359-degree rotation ensures that the water and electricity connections remain isolated. The owner Ben Kaiser, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, plans to enhance the rotation capacity of the home.
The high ceiling of the 144 square feet house ensures that it does not give a cramped feeling to the inhabitants. The house comprises of a living room, kitchen, bathroom and a staircase leading to a bedroom loft.
359 is unique in its sustainable design whereby the solar panels can easily be installed in the house to take it off the grid. Similarly, composting toilets can also be placed inside this house.
The owner of 359, Kaiser founded PATH Architecture in 2005 with the aim to ensure:
“The highest level of conceptual design…creating timeless modern works of lasting value. PATH is always examining the way we choose to live as a way to better design the spaces we live in.”
