An Eco-Extendable House
The Drawer House
Casa Gaveta (the Drawer House) is a house that can be extended by 50% of its base size, contracting or expanding to meet the needs of its inhabitants. An experimental project, the aim was to investigate the ways in which a house can respond to the changing lifestyles required by each season. Spring and summer mean guests and social events, while autumn and winter call for a slower pace requiring less room – with the house transforming accordingly at the mere push of a button.
Having won an innovation prize for the idea, CORE founder Anabela has since patented the design, providing Casa Gaveta in two modules: basic and complex.
