Text description provided by the architects. In the span of the years, even though the number of family members have increased, the house has remained the same, unable to fullfill current and future needs of the family. We set out to do a new expansion of the house that articulates itself with the old building, giving the entirely of the family generations the opportunity to enjoy the holidays simultaneously.

The intention of the project is to make a distinct contrast between the older and the newer part of the house. Keeping in mind the difficulties and restrictions these kind of projects have, we decide to add a new element in the roof floor.

Plans

We respect the personality and context of the existing building, meaning that we avoid modifying its original structure and external appearance. In order to integrate and help to distinguish the new element, we rounded the walls, curved the glass and even the structure.

Axonometric

The expansion has no edges, no color, no texture. Its design, as well as its minimalist monochromatic finishes, reminds of a cabin boat.

The interior space takes the form directly by the architectural shape of the exterior walls. Inside, the black fireplace along with the structural pillar could be understood as a sculpture.
