You’re lounging in the sun on the terrace. It’s getting a little warm, so you decide to go for a swim. You step to one side, push a button and slowly the pool reveals itself.
The walls or house fronts will rise up, the terrace will “bend” into a peak and a section will sink down to allow access to the pool. The terrace now becomes the roof of the swimming pool. While it might sound like it should be featured in the June issue of Architectural Digest 2025, the technology that makes it work, linear actuators, is being used today in many ways, from high end luxury items to commercial applications.
Designed to be multifunctional, MUTANDOR® by Extreme Exclusive B. V. is a complete terrace-to-building system that has more than ten customizations. The terrace-to-building system can be adapted for other uses, such as a windscreen, a party-hall, a pool cover, or a pool with a movable pool floor. Think a glass elevator would improve the functionality of your home? You can add that too. For almost any customization you choose, you can select the “open air”, “partly in-house” (partly covered) or “full in-house” (completely covered) option.
Not only does this multifunctional system allow you to use a particular space in a variety of different ways, it also can free you from the whims of nature – you can sit by the pool or go for a swim whether it’s raining or not.
