Hemeroscopium House: Not an average neighborhood house

13/04/2011

Houses Hemeroscopium by Ensamble Studios presses constraints on what can be prefab architecture. The house is constructed of three giant concrete I-beam, two concrete segments of the irrigation channels and two steel beams, all anchored by a 20-ton granite slab. The entire structure took about a year for engineers but only about one week to build.

Hemeroscopium is for the Greek the place where the sun sets, an allusion to a place that exists only in our mind, in our senses. It is constantly moving and mutable, but is nonetheless real. It is enclosed, delimited and suggested by the horizon, though it is defined by light and only takes place in a precise moment of time.
