The idea of a house structured by a continuous uncoated white concrete wall came to mind while walking along a Richard Serra steel spiral. It starts on the fireplace and extends to the plot limits. In analogy we aimed at two situations: on the inside “an emotion’s machine” and on the outside the object’s unity and its simplicity towards the surroundings.
