This “movable house” is based on a shellfish

23 October 2017

The shell-style "Movable Shell House" is based on shellfish which do not settle in a fixed location and choose wherever they want for living.

"Could people live more freely and be themselves just like a shell?" LIFULL HOME’s creation of a "Movable Shell House" came from this one thought.

This "Movable Shell House" can be taken freely, just like renting a sunshade. With it you can live where you want, when you want. For instance, spend time alone on a secluded (far off) beach or connect your home with those who share your passion. These movable estates can be taken anywhere in the world and lived in.

By triggering innovation in lifestyle, people are given more choices in life. And this notion of "Mobile-estate" is the very base for the concept of this project. This "Movable Shell House" has already been implemented from July 1st to August 31st at "LIFULL HOME'S House by the Sea" in Yuigahama, Kanagawa Prefecture for people to rent.

During its production process of these homes, the company utilised a tip processing cutter called "ShopBot," which can cut wood, based on designs stored on a computer. This was done with the cooperation of VULID Design & Management who proposed and implemented the foundation for ways of living for the next generation.

To make this concept of "Mobile-estate" more widespread, "Movable Shell House" has released a concept film. Watch it here!
