Michael Jantzen's Transformation House concept design is a self-contained structure that can change its shape for different functions.

Michael Jantzen‘s Transformation House is a design study for an interactive and responsive self-contained structure that changes its shape for different functions. The five center sections can be rotated manually or automatically around the living space, and the house’s windows and wind scoops can be rotated 360°. This helps to catch the sun to warm the house, catch the wind to cool it, catch the rain to supply it with water, see different views, or just alter the shape for fun.

The Transformation House would be made of lightweight steel with a glass floor, and partially clad with photovoltaic cells to generate electricity for its internal needs. All of the furnishings would be stored in semicircular cabinets that rotate up out of the floor and fold open when they’re needed. This allows the space to remain completely clear and open for when the occupants desire an internal transformation.
