The shell-style “Movable Shell House” is designed to propose a more futuristic, liberal way of living, with its appearance based on shellfish which do not settle in a fixed location and choose wherever they want for living. By triggering innovation in lifestyle, people are given more choices in life. And this notion of “Mobile-estate” is the very base for the concept of this project. Moreover, this “Movable Shell House” was already implemented from July 1st to August 31st at our company’s “LIFULL HOME’S House by the Sea” in Yuigahama, Kanagawa Prefecture for people to rent.
In addition, during its production process of these homes, the company utilized a tip processing cutter “ShopBot,” which can cut wood, based on designs stored on a computer. This was done with the cooperation of VULID Design & Management that has proposes and implements the foundation for ways of living for the next generation.
To make this concept of “Mobile-estate” more widespread, “Movable Shell House” will release a concept film on September 22nd (Fri.)

■ About the “Movable Shell House”
“Could people live more freely and be themselves just like a shell?” the creation of “Movable Shell House” came from this one thought in which LIFULL HOME’s than expressed this through the “Movable Shell House.”
This “Movable Shell House” can be taken freely, just like renting a sunshade. With it you can live where you want, when you want. For instance, spend time alone on a secluded (far off) beach or connect your home with those who share your passion. These movable estates can be taken anywhere in the world and lived in.
