Abstract : Metamorphic housing is a vision of homes that perform dynamic adaptations of their physical structures, so as to assist their occupants' activities and life cycle. This paper presents the on-demand room. It is a case study of metamorphic housing, where apartments of a building can be dynamically enlarged when the need arises. The additional space is to all intents and purposes an extension of the apartment, as devices and networks are interconnected and customized. We present the on-demand room and a model of computation formalizing its behavior and then illustrate the research problems that have to be solved to make it a reality. Finally, we describe our plans to demonstrate the on-demand room in an immersive virtual reality platform.
