conceptThe House Bierings designed by  the Dutch architect Rocha Tombal abstracts the traditional gable roof form by simplifying and adding multiple viewports (similar to Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum). 




The house, built for a private client, is a 3-in-1 building that slides along railroad tracks recessed into the concrete foundation. A greenhouse-like glass interior structure is exposed through the sliding movement of the red rubber and larch sheaths that form the exterior walls. This creative intervention fulfills the clients’ request for a home where they could grow food and enjoy the landscape.
