The Bridge:

Connects the house to longitudinal level, private bedrooms on the second floor with the social area first. It is an important element that helps create feelings and connecting the different spaces. Play with different perceptions through the sounds it creates when walking.

Materiality, allowed to have the desired amplitude sensation, even for having opaque elements between spaces, such as metal-wood bridge, not lost  the height required for the space.

It is designed as an open space with large distances and breadth, the only opaque elements are the service area that can be recognized by the outside aluminum hub and large interior stone tower that is the fireplace and inside the elevator. To make this possible the structure of the house was designed as a large white arm, which others are hung, as the master bedroom.

All bedrooms were designed with bathrooms included, this gave us a premise for interior design. So we decided to remove brick walls between the bathroom and the bedroom, and we designed of glass opaque to provide privacy without removing light, was an important point because it helped the perception of space is wider.
