the Puzzle House is ready to discover the world!
Designed by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group + HHF Architects
Project exection by Basi D Products
Resulting out of a collaboration of Swiss and Danish architects HHF Architects and BIG-Bjarke Ingels group, the Puzzle House triggers social interaction as most elements need to be carried by more than one person to combine them to different settings.
The Puzzle House is a multi-functional object consisting of a series of 34 individual elements, that when together form a house. Separately, each piece can act as a seating element. A big variety of seating scenarios for group discussions, or auditorium style seating for events ore public speaking can be configurated. When flipped on their sides, they can also act as wind barriers ore partitions to delineate spaces for various group activities.

~what is the goal with the Puzzle House? Is there a message? ~
HHF - Simon Frommenwiler: I would say one important message we want to give is that even small-scale projects can make a difference if they are done in a meaningful way. The Puzzle House itself is also conceived to physically offer a venue for events and discussions and triggers social interaction as most elements need to be carried by more than one person to combine them to different settings. To put the puzzle back together people need to talk to each other. It will be interesting to see to what other and unforeseen combinations the elements will be combined.
BIG - Bjarke Ingels: The Puzzle House is this odd hybrid hovering somewhere between sculpure, architecture and furniture. The lightness of the foam and the endurance of the rubber coating makes it an interesting hybrid between hard and soft, indoor and outdoor. Dense enough to stack - cushioned enough to be comfortable. So light it can be moved by hand, but so heavy that it stays where it is.
