Dolphin House is a home with movable hanging walls which allows users to choose and combine units to customize their home. The organization of each room's furniture is determined by the wall units' radius of motion and is available in 3 different configurations: circle, square, and line. Additionally, floor and wall materials can also be customized which, when combined with the mobility of the walls, allows for a the possibility of differently appearing rooms daily. As each combination of rooms create a unique layout and specific program, a structure's shape can match a given site's conditions or can be used for many different functions than that of a home.
Dolphin House modifies an existing product from the Kimado Corporation called ‘dolphin windows’ which move large surfaces of window along a rail allowing for the creation of large open spaces.
