Diagrams and Video: Home Is Where the Heart Is

Edited by Jane Rosemarin

Many of us are currently social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic and are therefore staying at home. This morning, that unique and challenging situation gave me an idea for an origami model: a house with a heart instead of a door.

I did a quick search, but didn't find any models, so decided to try designing my own. This is the result.

I toyed around with it a bit, thinking about creating a modular to allow folding a row of houses, but ultimately decided to make the house stand up.

Stay safe and healthy.
