Billboard House: Sign Painter’s Temporary Prefab Home Doubles as a Rooftop Advert in Mexico City

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.
