House BC < Back
The property has been designed with breath taking views from the plot creating a dynamic movement in the whole project. It is accompanied by a large glass area to the south which allow both the views and sunlight from entering inside the property hence a complete fusion occurs between the interior and exterior.
In the middle of the house is a blown step ladder which is mounted to the first floor. This staircase is protected by glass throughout its length, turns on an indoor garden that enables better cooling inside the house.
Access to house is through the ground floor from the top of the plot, leading to a hall with central distribution that allows access to all ground floor rooms. There is also access to a double-height living room fully glazed facade to the south, over which flies the first floor office and connected to the outside with a covered porch under the master bedroom terrace.
The living room is connected to the kitchen which opens completely to the front porch and the large garden plot.
The first floor volume is designed rotated relative to the volume of ground floor. In the basement we have designed a forecourt allowing access to this floor from the outside and that gives this plant ventilation and lighting sufficient to generate a large scale space.
