Mattias Lind, architect and partner at Scandinavian White arkitekter, has designed a house made entirely of paper – Chameleon Cabin – that changes appearance like a chameleon depending on which angle you view it from. It shimmers like marble in black and white.+ Read More
Mattias Lind aimed to show that architecture is always perceived in motion. The design concept is based on a corrugated outer surface, so that the house change color as you move around it and at the same time increases the stability. For the interior a bright yellow was chosen in order create a warm feel while contrasting against the more discrete black and white of the façade.
The roof and facade is suspended with hangers, in a solution similar to Lego, which makes the house easy to assemble and adjust. The design is flexible and possible to extend several hundred meters if needed.
