Rintala Eggertsson Architects - Element House

The Element House by Rintala Eggertsson Architects. From the Architects website:

Each small space includes a suggestion for use and the symbolic presence of one of the basic elements (fire, water, air, earth).

The project wishes to create an inner world where memories and even dreams may have their moment and place. It is bringing together an archetype of a house, movement in space and the expression of four basic elements into a three-dimensional collage."
