    houses around houses

    Hello
    I have recently seen images of the Moth-house by Japanese architects, Atelier Bow-Wow and was really impressed. Does anybody know other houses like this where effectively one house has been built around another... more or less enclosing it like a shell?
    Thanks
    Markus

    when I was a firefighter we had one for live fire training
    what it was a travel trailer/small mobile home with traditional stickbuilt rooms and roofs connecting/added on to it.
    Property owner wanted it cleared off.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    houses

    Our assistant prosecutor tells of a landowner who built a house inside a barn, I guess to keep it out of sight and to claim it falls under the state's agricultureal structure exemption. Had to be surreal.

    I only know of one other one... Eldridge Smerin designed a house around a house in the Highgate Conservation area of London. You can check out his projects in a flash slideshow at:
    http://www.eldridgesmerin.com/the_flash/frameset.html. I think the house and some of the renderings are on that site.

    Here is more info about the house.
