From June 15-21, on the occasion of Design Miami/ Basel 2015
, Galerie Patrick Seguin is pleased to present an adaptation of Jean Prouvé’s 6×6 Demountable House by by award-winning British architecture practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP)
The 6×6 Demountable House was originally designed by Jean Prouvé in 1944 to rehouse war victims in Lorraine, France. Built entirely from wood and metal, the houses were easily transported and quickly assembled.
The adaption of Prouvé’s 6×6 Demountable House led by RSHP’s Ivan Harbour is based on the original plans with the addition of modern living facilities including a satellite bathroom and kitchen as well as a series of service trolleys providing hot water and solar powered electricity. In doing so, RSHP was able to preserve the integrity of the original as a single living space.
