Incremental Houses



Incremental Houses is a project or people who lost their own house during an earthquake in Chile. This house is not finished, while the entire structure is visible and half of the volume is completely built, the second half is still empty. To finish the house the occupant has to take an action, to re-appropriate the void. In this way every house becomes personal and different from the other surrounding ones. The house, that started as identical to many others, becomes personal and addresses the aesthetic and functional needs of the occupant.
