The Invisible House is located in Sydney, Australia. The building was designed by Enter Projects. Designed to disappear. The invisible house, as it is now known for obvious reasons, is architecture that is designed to disappear. Deflected walls have a morphemic effect ensuring that the house is never in complete view and offers a different perspective from whatever point you stand creating what Enter Architecture describe as a ‘4 dimensional space’.
In a graphic-infatuated, visual appeal driven era; invisibility may work as the absolute retreat, according to engineer Patrick Keane, founder of Enter Architecture. It was when a client rushed to his door with a demand to construct a home that erects invisibly, Keane geared up and picked the challenge. Keane clarifies that in to design a house meant“disappear,” every wall is averted in shape which lends itself to “Dynamic Architecture”.
The Invisible House presents conventional family functionality with three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs andopen living-room/kitchen and a further bathroom downstairs, but the structure will be anything but conventional. The carbon structure is super-lightweight at just 100 grams per m2 and has borrowed technologies as well as materials from Formula 1 and Aerospace industries. Paper thin carbon walls can support three times the ordinary weight which further reduce the structure’s dominance in its environment.The use of this technique adds a strong appeal to this house that is hardly seen completely or comprehended from any distinct vantage point.
“The Invisible House” is anticipated to be erected in Sydney, but Keane concurs that it is evocative of a structural designin Southern California. The material used in construction of this unusual home would be very light weighted i.e. carbonfiber composites. The home practices technologies from Formula 1 and Aerospace engineering, thereby assuringsolidarity amidst needful lightness. The walls are literally paper-thin, which is another way that it truly is "The Invisible House." Inside, "The Invisible House" has everything a typical home would have: three bedrooms and twobathrooms.
