This Billboard House features a lightweight prefabricated structure at the back of the billboard, which serves as a 1-bedroom house.
Mounted on a rooftop in Mexico City, the house was designed by architect Julio Gómez Trevilla and acts as a temporary home for the artist hired to paint the billboard.
Designed as a multi-functional studio space, the house can ‘transform’ to suit the needs of the inhabitant. The interior of the studio is clad with lightweight chipboard panels, and contains a bedroom, bathroom, dressing room, kitchen and study desk. The roof of the house features a terrace which accessed through a door located within the billboard itself.
To prevent excessive heat gain, the designer created a wood roof separate from the house module, allowing it to act as a shade for the living space below and doubling as the terrace deck. The plumbing for the home is contained in a small tower above the main structure. The Billboard House was developed by Scribe marketing agency as part of an advertising campaign.
Nice concept totally ruined by the UGLY chipboard cabinetry.
Paul – I like the concept too, and I have to agree, I’ve seen better looking OSB cabinetry.
