There are many examples of houses with transforming facades and openings, but studio Raum's house in Sarzeau, France actually has entire rooms that can be wheeled outside of the building! Depending on the weather or their preferences, residents can choose to have their bedrooms open directly to the surrounding landscape instead of the interior of the home.
Thomas Durant of the studio Raum designed this transforming house for a family with small children looking to build a home in Brittany, in north-western France. The house features bedrooms that can be wheeled out anytime the kids feel like camping. Instead of keeping a tent in the garden, an actual piece of the house can be taken and placed on the patio. Thanks to a nicely detailed doorway, there is no problem wheeling the rooms out. The architect even put sockets on the façade, so the rooms have electricity even when they’re outside.
The architect suggested to the clients to replace the children’s bedrooms with wheeled box bedrooms that reference traditional box-beds used at the beginning of the century in Brittany. The design is practical, interesting and – especially important for the kids – looks like so much fun!
