The “Maison Caméléon”


The Chameleon house is a standalone accommodation project in dry land. First developed for a specific area in Qatar, this type of accommodation is totally usable in the western regions. The architect Pierre MINASSIAN and his team worked on the rapid assembly structure with very little foundation. The stretched canvas are fixed on the metal structure that once folded is stored in a container made especially for this building. The house is autonomous in electricity with the use of photovoltaic panels and in water through the tanks to collect rainwater.
