The site of the project is a garden of 4,000 sqm area and is surrounded by neighborhood gardens. The total area of the building is around 500 sqm of which 150 sqm has been allocated to exterior voids and semi-covered spaces.

sections + elevations

In this project the open exterior spaces are as significant as the interiors. The architects accomplished this by eliminating any suggestive distance between outside and inside. The result became a series of voids and volumetric projects that capture and define the landscape. Continuous views towards the X, Y and Z axis’s were created and the main spaces are organized between transparent layers extended by voids or semi-covered balconies.

    nice touch on tile and lighting design…

    Good overall with some great moments throughout. Nicely done! I would on a personal level like more soft surfaces (throw rugs or some such) to break it up and create more comfortable areas contained within the whole, but that’s more dependent on the needs and wishes of the client than anything.
