Open house #1
by L.E.FT (Makram El Kadi & Ziad Jamaleddine)
Inspired by the suburban housedress of the 1950s, House Dress takes the domestic garment onto the architectural scale to make an exclusive suburban event space. Suspended from the roof and hanging just above the knee,
House Dress conceals enough to create a sense of intimacy, yet reveals enough to create a public spectacle. The homeowner, an avid gamer, invites lucky neighbors to join in on one of several ongoing games. A suburban casino takes hold, and here, the house always wins.
