Sale: Michael Jantzen’s M-House

Architect Michael Jantzen is frequently featured on these pages, and now you can own one of the experimental designer’s most seminal works. Chicago’s Wright auction house will be selling off the M-house on March 25 (2007). More of an experimental pavilion than a conventional house, the M-House features a shifting faade of folding panels, allowing you to open the structure up to the landscape, or close yourself off, as the mood (and weather) permits. The buyer will get the house in flat-pack style, so they can erect it wherever they want.

    His concepts are ahead of present day times, in the sense that the designs have futuristic undertone.

    is this a more efficient house with passive solar? i guess you could set it up to be, but it’s not directly addressed

    Very nice for a Creative office but not for residential use. Natural surroundings are the most pleasant to “humans”. I don’t think i’ll be comfortable living in this building.

    The design has distinct possibilities, if sealable, insulated,acrylic glass window sliders and of a larger format for cargo barges and kitted for bush-pilot/floatplane transporability. With legal permits, the developmental insight for remote/unusual dwellings could be quite promising. If IKEA built a house it would look like this. Add satellite ISP, solar and wind power and you’re home free. A solution for “Vista de Nada”. MHO

  • Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of
    hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
