the manifestation of the pixel concept seen at the entrance via broad platform steps and the canopy above articulated as an exposed concrete structure perforated square cutouts in varying sizes incorporated by large custom made brass lamps suspended in this sheltering element the main door bears a similar design handle in continuum to the entire composition the highlight is the staircase block the stepped form of the architectural envelope through a series of stepped planters expanding garden

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The composition connected communal zones spread across the three floors also looking for opportunities to expand the garden area within the internal spaces and the terracing concept allows the spatial framework to bind these two interests together this is achieved by creating a continuity of setbacks on each subsequent level adjoined by greens all bathrooms feature skylights thus enjoying the same connection to the outdoors as the rest of the interior

CHALLENGE:
Several challenges were maximizing the area of the house and optimizing the view to the north garden creating an open approach for a more intensified spatial quality providing opportunities devising a construction strategy to keep the home weatherproof during its transformation with minimal maintenance and aesthetic expression went hand in hand including the more sensitive subject of the environment a series of outdoor congregational areas are built into the very fabric of the building
