NEON is an UK based artistic practice which explores the territory between art, architecture and design. We believe art has the ability to enrich people’s lives. Our goal is to design projects that are not just beautiful and intriguing but which also facilitate engaging, sensory and emotional experiences.

The NEON team is composed of Mark Nixon and Viliina Koivisto. Mark is ARB chartered architect and Viliina is a Finnish visual artist with an education in fine art and arts management. As a team we have designed and delivered a wide range of different permanent and temporary art projects in both interior and exterior spaces.

Shiver House is an exploration into the idea that architecture can be used as a means to create a closer emotional link between its inhabitants and the natural world it sits within.

Shiver House is a radical reinvention of the common Finnish Hut (mökki). The project is a kinetic “animal like” structure which moves and adapts in response to surrounding natural forces.

Shiver House is an exploration into the idea that architecture can be used as a means to create a closer emotional link between its inhabitants and the natural world it sits within. In addition the project explores the idea that architecture can be made to seem “alive” with the intention that this will engender a deeper and longer lasting emotional relationship between people the structures we inhabit.

This wooden version is the second iteration of Shiver House, it was built in 2019. The first version of Shiver House was built during an AARK residency in spring 2015. Here are some never-seen-before images of the first build!
