From the architect. For the surrounding ground, a set of virtually blank solids perform a dialectically tensioned play, searching, through scale and accentuation on the surfaces edges outlines, the emphasis on the light/shadow interplay, proposing an ever changing reading throughout the day.

The outline and voiding of the mass proposes an articulation of solids and wall surrounded patios, succeeding each other in the organization of a rhythmic sequence of a fluid program. The openings either of limited dimensions or placed in the interstitial spaces, in between the various solids, allow, in a quite controlled way, the fruition of chosen frames.

The scale, the openings and the skylights, become instruments for light capture and redirection, either diffused or of a direct nature, drawing and sprinkling with light the interior planes throughout the daylight cycle.

Within the inner perimeter, a sequence of horizontal and vertical interplays between the various solids, voids and outlines, create the spatial identity structure of the house.

With plastered blank shutters, in the same finishing as the coating of the outside walls, when shut, lead to virtually blank solids, in the pursuit of a clear reading of the format.

Some ambiguities in the reading and definition of the containing and the contained elements inter-relations play with the observer's capacity and interest in the decoding of space and shape design.

stuck in movement more than a century old (modernism).
speaks badly about humanity's capacity to push forward (modernity).

Dennis · November 26, 2010 04:12 PM

most contemporary architecture speaks even more badly about "humanity's capacity to push forward (modernity)"... most of what i see on these sites are grandstanding, egotistical architects producing increasingly distorted and meaningless forms. At least modernist architecture was trying to achieve something...

anyway, architecture isn't gonna solve society's problems

so many aerial shots, like if humans had eyes on the top of the head...
nice house btw
