One year ago we brought you the Wall House [2], an elegant small-scale home that challenges the concept of walls with its delaminated construction and a flexible shell that invokes a sky-blown kite or a pristinely unfurled sail. Now we’ve got exciting news for all those interested in the innovative structure: Frohn & Rojas Architects [3] just launched a customizable kit [4] that will let you build your own Wall House!

Entitled Your Wall House [4], the new kit will allow anyone access to the schematics that was recognized as one of Architectural Record’s 2008 Record Houses and swept the AR Emergent Awards in 2007.

The house itself is an elegant exercise in conceptual architecture: “The project breaks down the “traditional” walls of a house into a series of four delaminated layers (concrete cave, stacked shelving, milky shell, soft skin) in between which the different spaces of the house slip. From the inside out the layers build upon one another, both materially and geometrically, blurring the boundary between the interior and the exterior and creating . . . a series of qualitatively distinct environments.”

Your Wall House kit includes a full set of schematics that can be precision tailored for a variety of applications based upon personal needs, local building codes, and varying climate conditions. Prices range from $1,499 – $12,462, and we can’t wait to see more permutations of this innovative approach to architecture.
