Casa Em Movimento (House In Motion), Matosinhos

Casas Em Movimento’s most advanced solution, which includes all the movements allowed by our technology:

  • Rotation movement of up to 360º of the whole building to follow the Sun, but also controllable by the user with a smartphone;
  • Tilting of the (photovoltaic) cover, allowing the windows to be exposed to the sun in the winter, and to cast shadows over them in the summer while creating covered terraces;

These movements also allow the dynamic creation of new spaces, that adapt to the routine of its users, such as:

  • Change of interior spaces: E.g. in the morning the kitchen can have 20m2, which is enough for more rushed meals like breakfast. In the afternoon, the kitchen can relate to the outside, allowing you to interact with this space, especially on sunny days. At the end of the day, the kitchen can be oriented towards the living room, creating a space of 80m2, so that the family can be reunited;
  • Alteration of exterior spaces: E.g. the movement of the roof allows the creation of a terrace and a porch, covered by photovoltaic panels;

This prototype is now in Matosinhos, at Rua de Goa.
