Hemeroscopium House: Not your average neighborhood house

Hemeroscopium House: Not your average neighborhood house

Okay, here is something you don't see every day. The Hemeroscopium House by Ensamble Studios pushes the limits on what prefab architecture can be. The house is built from three giant concret I-beams, two concret segments of an irrigation canal and two steel girders, all anchored by a 20-ton granite slab. The entire structure took about an year to engineer but only about a week to build.

So, why 'Hemeroscopium'?

Hemeroscopium is for the Greek the place where the sun sets, an allusion to a place that exists only in our mind, in our senses. It is constantly moving and mutable, but is nonetheless real. It is enclosed, delimited and suggested by the horizon, though it is defined by light and only takes place in a precise moment of time.

We would *love* to get a view from that top pool!
