Situated on Washington’s San Juan Islands – just nine miles off the shores of Victoria, BC – is the transforming “Shadowboxx” house.

Designed by architecture firm Olson Kundig, the home has giant shutters that fold to reveal floor-to-ceiling glass walls; an extendable deck that can bring the entire living room outside; and interior walls that can be re-arranged.

And if you want to enjoy nature while you’re answering nature’s call, Shadowboxx’s retractable roof over the bathroom can accommodate that, too.

Shadowboxx is not unlike D*Dynamic, the house designed to change shape depending on the weather.

While we’re not sure that we’d enjoy all the home’s features during the Pacific Northwest’s rainy winter, we’d certainly love to spend a few days there between April and October.
