PRENUPTIAL HOUSING

prenuptial housing The designed concept home is a response to the increasing divorce rates in todays’s society. Together with concept creator Omar Kbiri (co-founder of Maak), we hope that ‘Prenuptial Housing’ is a solution for the increasing number of marriages that end up in divorce.

The architectural design consists of two prefabricated units that appear to be one. They embrace each other and form the foundation of a modern home. The building consists of lightweight carbon fiber elements and a semi-transparent wooden layer that enhances the unity and possibility to adapt to different environments. When couples feel they are drifting apart, the house initiates a ‘break up’, by detaching the two units which then go solo on the water.
