Cliff House . Moher Retreat


Somewhere on the southwest coast of Ireland, on the steep, rough cliffs of Moher, the house is conceived as a void in the steep face.

It is a building in motion. The wooden structures fold and couple among them modifying its whole size. It is capable of adapting to different inside necessities and outside conditions. A wooden museum integrated in the surrounding park. The arboreal shapes of its flexible inte- riors recall the character of the woods.
