Clients want a big house, but the ground is small. He wants ultimate privacy, she wants an open house with garden (light and airy)
The house was closed to the open road and within batch, creating a micro-climate.
He kept the entry fee of the old house demolished (+0.90 m), enabling the implementation of a basement (semi-buried), which contains the desk with his large library, and a bathroom. This space is reversible as guest bedroom (3rd bedroom). From there, you see the street and the sky from an unusual viewpoint.
A bucket of 6 × 6x6m, placed in the center of the lot, terraced on the sides, open to two patios, front and bottom, which are configured as a natural extension of the house, ensuring maximum utilization of the land
A second cube of 3 × 3x3m, discovered, implanted in the forehead as an extrusion of the room, complete the titration, determining the space for the garage. This service contains the cupboard and the garden that extends from the room.
While the open house for both patios, interior and exterior merge without loss of privacy. This allowed maximum use of the land, with abundant natural lighting and ventilation.
