Möbius House


Möbius House

The Möbius band or strip in mathematics is a surface with only one boundary or side and is obtained by cutting a closed band into a single strip, giving one of the two ends thus produced a half twist, and then reattaching the two ends. This creates an infinite surface - the internal surface becomes the external one.

This concept is utilized to create the shell of the Möbius House. Both exterior and interior are one surface that takes an 180° twist to form a sculptural ceiling cladding feature. The Möbius band as an Architectural 'shell' creates an environment where the exterior and interior are continuously inverted depending on where you are using the building.

The negative space formed within the band is made into an inhabitable sequence of spaces to suit the particular needs of a professional family with an at home business model and modern lifestyle requirements. separating public/business space from private quarters via feature library staircase and mezzanine dining /meeting space.

The Möbius Band concept will be explored further in other Architectural typologies.
