One-Room House

Ascending up 13 floors, the One-Room House is designed as a continuous spiral. The dwelling is housed in a narrow metal shell. Although privacy is minimal, the interior is free of partitions. Rather than separate rooms, the open space is divided by levels. The platforms are made from corrugated-metal and are supported by a mixture of roof beams and steel pipes. White paint creates a uniform palette throughout. A series of wooden steps add a subtle warmth while also joining each tier, ultimately ending at a rooftop terrace.
