This is a fun little idea, taking the idea of shutters and writing it large across the facade of the house.  Opening a few, most, or all playfully changes the look and feel of the house, shifting throughout the day.  Even when completely closed, the cutouts (which derive from symbols used to identify boats and gear in this traditional fishing town) keeps things warm, illuminated at night like a giant tea light lantern.

The reverse, of course, also works, cutting the glare and heat-ray effect from direct sunlight and casting a delightful patterns within.  (Though I do not know why they do not have any furniture…)
