The location of the site in a heavily built area and the presence of two blind walls on the site have restricted us to create an “urban fill”. Therefore, the two facades of the house face the street and the pool courtyard altogether.
This type of organization has implicitly influenced the layout of the rooms – the common spaces are grouped towards the street, while the private spaces are oriented towards the garden so as to benefit from a high level of intimacy.
Both facades are transparent so as to allow the passing through of natural light into the interior and to create a visual link between the building, the garden and the street.
The natural finishes – the natural stone tiles, the wooden sunshades and the bamboo blinds – along with the vegetation that is embracing the walls underline the intimate relationship between the built and the unbuilt space.
