House structure and design
The story begun when architects got descriptive brief from the client, stating that he wants them to create a single story home with urban atmosphere. The site already had old 1950’s house built on it, so architects decided to use existing structure and turn it into awesome new house. Since the owner wanted his new house to be built only on the ground level, architects got the opportunity to be extra creative with the floor plan. They decided to go with large double volume space in case that client decides to go for a vertical expansion in the future. Floor plan is divided in to main areas, public and private.
“To enter the private areas of the home, one must cross a bridge above a new internal water feature which breaks the public and private spaces, separating the entrance hall and study from the private home. In keeping with the owner’s brief to have a home with an urban and open feel, the interior and exterior entertaining areas have been blurred by sliding stacking doors that open up the whole facade.” – states official press release.
