and their actual needs.
Port X is an experimental flexible architectural project designed for a non-traditional locations on water, or in heavily built-up areas. The rectangular single-story building with a shed roof is made of six C-shaped segment modules made out of insulated composite structure. This element creates the floor, roof and one wall. The facade is then completely made of glass and makes an ideal connection with the environment in which the module is located. The windows open onto a terrace and a narrow walkway. The facade facing the shore only holds the main entrance.All of the construction’stechnology devices are hidden in a pontoon under the object itself. The wooden decking covering the rounded interior creates a free-flowing spacethat can be adjusted to the individual needs of any client. Port X is a personalized building system that can be adjusted as needed, to grow smalleror bigger. It is suitable for family housing or for commercial use.
