Orangerock by Mohn+Bouman, a Dutch architectural firm, is essentially a disguise for a house. Fashioned entirely around the old residence that resides in that very spot, it essentially creates an imposing steel screen that turns it into what looks like a lair for some kind of comic book villain. In reality, it converts the space into modern and temporary office for the small innovative project developer that bought the land surrounding it.

With future development planned to take place in the next ten years, the developer didn't want to leave the space as it was, but also didn't want to create something too permanent. Hence Orangerock by Mohn+Bouman was born. Installed in two weeks, it was completely cut by a computer.
