The heat of California was a definite consideration for Korean designer Christopher Daniel who came up with this roll-like home concept. Designed for arid environments, the house is secured with a carbon fiber truss frame and has a hydraulic powered automatic door. The upper half of the door opens overhead and the lower part unfolds onto the ground. Depending on the amount of sun, residents can make skylights and windows less or more transparent. Curtains and bookshelves act as dividers in the rooms.
