Marchi’s ‘House33’ Was Built To Coexist With Renault’s Symbioz Concept

In 2016, Renault held a competition revolving around automotive-focused architecture. While many entered, France’s Marchi Architectes persevered — and after introducing a portable, fully-integrated escape centered on the brand’s conceptual car, the Symbioz, they were awarded top honors.

The aptly-named ‘Renault Symbioz House33’ makes its debut atop a wide segmentation of land within France’s serene countryside — although, it has been conceptualized for use in a variety of different ecosystems and environments. Measuring over 21 meters long, this simplified, single-unit home has been tailored to take on the traits of Renault’s sleek autonomous vehicle, prioritizing connectivity, social awareness, and adaptive living areas over less-meaningful inclusions. As such, the home’s various spaces can be accessed by the Symbioz, which acts as a “mobile room” that can be placed in its interior, outside, or on its roof, via elevator. Instead of utilizing our vehicle for transportation, Marchi hopes to open the door to increased interconnectivity with our automotive counterparts — a world where our homes, offices, and living areas can be augmented by the use of our four-wheeled compatriots. Head to Marchi’s website to learn more about the project.
