The main idea behind the project is to make a house integrated within the surrounding context, oriented towards the views over the Mera river. The terrain’s slope, which could be seen as a problem, becomes a solution by designing a house closed to the North and open to the South (where the best sights are), therefore protected from the cold temperatures and open to the natural light.
The main design features of this project are the simple volumetric composition, the large glass panes, the projecting shapes that break the uniformity of the straight lines, its ample interior spaces and predominant materials: glass, wood and concrete.
On the façades, a succession of large windows contributes to dissolve the border between interior and exterior spaces. The project unfolds following these conceptual lines by creating a simple yet beautiful volume composition: a lengthwise axis intersects two parallel prisms at different heights; the latter are the key to the volumetric and spatial distribution of the house.
