Text description provided by the architects. The complete whiteness of a small traditional house is interrupted by cuts that display natural materials. Inside, two types of white ceilings are purposefully incomplete, revealing the wood beams that hold the first floor and the roof structure.

Concept

As a result, clear spatial centers are defined for both the social areas and the bedroom: one in the shape of a cross and another in the shape of a circle, respectively.

Model

Outside, pieces of pink limestone are scattered along three of the four white facades of the house, randomly highlighting specific architectural moments: corners, edges, friezes, window frames, and the entrance door. There’s an overall sense of a ruin-type building, both inside and out.
