This house is surrounded by forest, its exterior walls have a smooth concrete look and sleek aluminium windows to emphasize the contrast to the lush green background.
The plan consists of three rectangular elements strung together by a collection of functions, which have an individual character and are centered around a glass patio, that vertically pierces trough the house. As a result, light enters and the outdoor environment remains tangible to the lowest level.
Openness vs closeness and private vs public are important concepts in this assignment and also a distinct request of the clients to play with this flexibility of zoning withing the house, creating a visual and physical relationship with the exterior.
