is this a stylized mobius strip design like the many attempts before it?
 

Aristotheke unveils scheme for a habitable circuit 

This single family residence offers two bedrooms, a workshop on the ground level, a carport and a top-floor guestroom. A number of balconies and outdoor decks are distributed in the various levels.

The formal concept explores the manipulation of a closed ring, a definite circuit twisted, pulled and stretched as to intersect itself. The obvious geometric theme initiated from the moebius strip, leading to a much simpler formal outcome that has incredible spatial implications. Simply, a rectangle is smudged twice and skewed, generating a sectional and planar profile that offers habitable spaces. Plans and vertical sections of the form become almost identical. The absolute transparency in the wide axis of the house establishes an exhibitionist vertical stack of living platforms defining a clear directionality for the project.
