A Peculiar Residence/ The Play with the Scale.
The steps of the design process
The Scale of the building is the key to the solution, as the building seems to be a five storey one, but it actually is a three storey one. If someone observes the parts that compromise the dwelling, he will notice that none of them can offer viable interior space, due to their apparent height. The space of each storey is the intersection of two volumes, and so the height becomes the appropriate one for a delightful and healthy living. Within the building there is a cantilever and in the private parts of the residence there is a difference on the height of the planes. The entrance is located on the second floor. The staircase leads the guests to the first floor and the owners to private living room.
The design of the residence is influenced by the Movement of Constructivism in Art and Architecture.
