The canvas thus becomes structurally integrated with the house, while acting as its façade.

Conceived as a versatile one-room space, the house can be transformed to suit the needs of the artist hired to produce the artwork. The interior is clad with lightweight chipboard panels and comprises a small bedroom, a bathroom, dressing room, kitchen and a desk. The house includes a terrace which is accessed through a door located within the billboard itself. The canvas thus becomes structurally integrated with the house, while acting as its façade.

In order to prevent excess heat, the designer introduced a wooden roof separated from the housing module, which creates a shade for the space below and forms the terrace deck. The plumbing is situated in a small tower that pierces the structure and rises above the deck. The Billboard House was developed as part of an advertising campaign for the Scribe marketing agency.
