Architects: Arhitektu Birojs Arhiidea
Text description provided by the architects. The idea behind the ESCLISE Mobile Design Home was to deliver a complete house with complete outer and inner finishing, installations and furniture. Thus volume and configuration of the structure results from transportation possibilities. The house is delivierd in two parts: upper and bottom part. Complete finishing of the two parts and carefully designed junction details allows a quick and easy installation in abput two hours by two workers + crane operation.
The concept of ESCLICE house was inspired by traditional Latvian bread - a good slice of rye bread with fresh butter is enough to gain feeling of satisfaction without eating up the whole loaf.
Our every-day life need are often overestimated leading towards excessive consumption of material goods, including the space. The idea was to create a spatial structure that satisfies desire for high quality living and working environment yet reducing its costs, unnecessary space and ecological footprint to minimun; to create space, that is easy to use, adopt and shrink or extend; space that embodies fundamental feelings of home, warmth and safety. Home that can be easily taken with you to your favorite place, adapted to the context and your personal needs, a simple home with no stress.
