This is a proposal for a countryhouse renovation
andARCHITECTURE was asked for an inside/outside renovation of an outdated house in the countryside close to DŸsseldorf, Germany. While negotiations about the grade of alteration still continue, we hereby present a few glimpses of the possibilities. Enjoy!
Future Home Project
Future â€¦ what?
Future Home is an on-going research project. Talking to architects, thinkers and scientists, searching the web, collecting articles, documents and photographs, we strive to explore the history and the intentions of past and present domestic future concepts.
Belief in the future is a strong emotion to evoke, can architecture still serve this purpose?
"So you think you can write?" a well-writing friend of mine asked and I could only reply that I was merely trying very, very hard. This research has indeed influenced me deeply. What started out as a naive boy's dream trying to find hints at the future in future homes, it developed into a very dark outlook on a finite planet without glossy future. Why do today's utopias seem so bleak in comparison to their older counterparts?

What are our current visions? Do we need new visions at all - in the eternal now in which our future longing merely reaches the next iPhone?
Please feel free to comment if you dare to read on...
â€¦ and enjoy it with a glass of wine in a comfortable armchair, the future needs to be taken seriously!
