The front facade derives its expression from the interior interplay of openness and privacy. It screens the house from the street through several layers: the stairway, the bookshelves, the solid wall with punched windows providing glimpses of the street, and the exterior perforated aluminum rain screen. Two narrow vertical glass slots run the full height of the facade, capturing light from the street while further accentuating the length of the spaces with continuous views from the front to the back of the building.
A sequence of boxes of different sizes that are attached and moved across. The boxes open to one side and close to the opposite side in order to show or hide their content. These different boxes slide on each other while being however internally connected. The different uses inside are visually independent but there is still a continuity between them. The lower boxes host the more private uses of the dwelling, such as the bedroom, the dressing room and the bathroom, while the higher ones host the more public uses, such as the living room, the dining room and the kitchen
In this project, we applied the principle of parametric architecture again, however, this time the design was more complex and elaborated: there is no space between panels (the viewers won’t care about dust), that’s why the wall looks like a complex monolithic element with intricate curves, some features serve as shelves, and some of them are decorative only. This makes the room look ultramodern, the composition being somewhat compensated by making the bed corner in a light art deco style: a leather quilted bed with a ceiling-high head, soft and warm lighting – all this makes the room cozy and allows admiring the architectonic design ‘from the outside’. Because the architectonic wall is in focus, we decided to use a restrained combination of graphite grey and white.
