OUTin house by ecoMOD November 12, 2007
The primary design strategy of ecoMOD1: the OUTin house, is to make the entire site habitable and useable. Rather than a rectangular box without functional outdoor spaces, the OUTin house is placed to merge outside and inside places. Sunlight, breezes, vegetation, the earth and the surrounding context are brought into the house through passive design strategies and shifted modules that define outdoor / indoor spaces. OUTin’s design strategies are grounded philosophically and formally in our ecological mission, making ecology legible for the inhabitant.
